Charges, Allegations Against CNN Producer John Griffin
CNN producer John Griffin is on the edge after getting indicted on charges of luring young girls to his Vermont ski house for “sexual subservience” training, New York Post reported.
According to the indictment from the US Attorney for Vermont, John allegedly used messaging apps to befriend and persuade moms of young girls, telling them that “a woman is a woman regardless of her age” and that he should be the one to “train” their daughters sexually.
It has been alleged that he got at least one mom of two daughters to bring the girls to his Ludlow ski getaway, in June 2020. The indictment revealed that John told her it was her responsibility to see that her older daughter, only 13 years old, was “trained properly.”
Moreover, the CNN producer sent the woman $3,000 for plane tickets so he could fly them out to Boston from Nevada. He picked them up in his Tesla for the ride to Ludlow, the court papers revealed. Authorities claimed that it was there that “the daughter was directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity.”
The indictment also revealed that John also made attempts to attract two other young girls on the internet. He used apps such as Kik and Google Hangout to communicate with them and lure them into performing sexual activities. John allegedly proposed a “virtual training session” over video chat in April 2020, in which he would urge a mother and her 14-year-old daughter to remove their clothes and touch each other.
Also, according to the indictment, John informed another mother of a 16-year-old girl in June 2020 that she should plan a “little mother-daughter trip” to his Ludlow ski chalet for sexual training involving the youngster.
FBI agents arrested the CNN producer on 10 December 2021. He faced charges with three counts of attempting to attract juveniles to participate in illicit sexual activity by a federal grand jury in Vermont.
According to the indictment, the government will seek to seize the property used in the alleged offenses, including Griffin’s Ludlow ski house, his Tesla, and a Mercedes.
On each count, Griffin faces a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years in prison.
