The two women – one who was identified as Milton’s cousin, Aubrey Smith, and the other, whose identity is not mentioned and is referred to as Jane Doe – are represented by Utah-based lawyer Craig Johnson. The women claim to have been sexually abused by Milton in 1999 and 2004, when both women were 15 years old, respectively.
Smith’s complaint was filed at the United Salt Lake Police Department in Utah on Saturday. Sergeant Melody Cutler of the department confirmed to CNN Business that she had received a complaint in connection with a sexual assault incident in September 1999 against Milton, when he would have been 17, on Saturday.
“Mr. Milton categorically denies these false allegations,”
Nicholas asked Milton for comment.
The hydrogen and electric truck launch went public in June and announced it had struck a $ 2 billion share deal with General Motors, which will also see GM build its electric pickup, Nicolas Badger, just days before the report. Hindenburg.
“Our deal with Nicola is not over. We are discussing with Nicola’s current management and will provide additional updates when appropriate or necessary. In light of recent allegations about the personal conduct of former Nicolas CEO Trevor Milton, we would like to emphasize that GM strongly condemns sexual harassment and abuse of any kind, “GM said in a statement Tuesday.
Jane Doe’s complaint was filed with police in St. George, Utah on Friday, her attorney Johnson said. The St. George’s Police Department did not immediately return CNN Business’s request for comment.
Speaking on behalf of the women, Johnson said “their hope is to have their voices heard, that they can get some kind of closure by being empowered to stand up for themselves and no longer suffer in silence.”
He said that while Smith’s statute of limitations had probably expired, her testimony could still be relevant in court. While Jane Doe’s lawsuit would expire in 2008 under a four-year limit, Utah’s law was amended to remove the statute of limitations, so her case is likely to be enforced, Johnson said.
