Jesus Figueroa arrested for simple assault and terroristic threats by Middletown Police
According to Dauphin County District Attorney Fran Chardo, The 11th Dauphin County Investigating Grand Jury received a case involving an allegation of sexual assault by a member of the General Assembly against a staff member.
The Grand Jury identified problems, it says, thwarted the interests of justice and tended to dissuade victims from coming forward earlier.
The Grand Jury issued a Report recommending ten steps that the General Assembly can take to ensure justice for future victims. District Attorney Fran Chardo praised the victim for her courage in coming forward, the Grand Jury for their “wisdom,” and the leaders within the General Assembly for their willingness to embrace new methods to ensure justice for victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment.
Charges were not filed against the member of the General Assembly.
