Ex-Tucker Carlson producer accused of sexual assault

A former producer for Tucker Carlson at Fox News has been accused of sexual assault against a fellow employee.

The report claims that Justin Wells grabbed the genitals of fellow staffer Andrew Delancey in 2008.

The case

"A brief version of the suit — claiming assault and battery on the part of Wells, and negligence and sexual harassment on the part of Fox — was originally filed late last month, just ahead of a deadline for claims under the New York Adult Survivors Act, which temporarily lifted the statute of limitations for civil complaints from sexual assault victims. The full complaint was filed Monday," the Washington Post reported.

“Wells utilized his status at Fox to prey on Mr. Delancey,” the complaint reads.

His role

"Wells has previously been described as Carlson's 'right-hand man,' and was fired from Fox News this spring after Carlson's prime-time show was nixed," Newsweek reported.

"At the time of the alleged encounter with Delancey, according to the lawsuit, Wells was working as a senior producer for the Fox News show On the Record with Greta Van Susteren," it added.

The background

"The lawsuit alleges that less than a month into Delancey working at the network, Wells invited him to join other employees at a gay bar, but first insisted they meet for drinks at Wells' apartment," according to the Messenger.

"There, Delancey alleges that Wells 'easily overpowered' him, forced him onto the bed, and repeatedly grabbed his genitals causing 'severe pain,' despite Delancey yelling 'no,' according to the Post revelations," it noted.

The matter is a serious one that occurred years ago, yet the case is moving forward under the state's survivor law.

The case adds to several others filed under the newly passed legislation that allows survivors years to file claims related to sexual assault.

In the current case, the network involved is also in the lawsuit, adding to the publicity in the case as the investigation moves forward.
