In a recent interview, Tonii stated
“Accusations of sexual assault are the easiest accusations to make-up, because the so-called victim is automatically believed, often without proper investigation. As soon as this occurs, the accused person should contact a lawyer so that we can start our own investigation and take the offensive.”
She has real concerns regarding the “I believe you” and “Me Too” campaigns that may hinder the accused’s right to a fair trial.
