Is Andrew “Judge” Napolitano a sexual predator? Here are the accusations
Yet another prominent figure has been accused of sexual assault – how unsurprising. Within our ever-evolving society, we have recently seen a large shift in people standing up for themselves by going public with sexual assault allegations. Many prominent figures have been put on blast – including former New Jersey Superior Court judge Andrew Napolitano.
Andrew Napolitano, self-dubbed “Judge Napolitano,” has been accused of sexual assault & attempted rape in two separate lawsuits.
The first allegation was filed by Charles Corbishley on September 11; Corbishley claimed Napolitano sexually assaulted him in November 1987 after he was a defendant in Napolitano’s court. Corbishley was twenty-years old at the time and said that Napolitano instructed him to “be a good boy” while coercing him into having oral sex, which led to forced anal intercourse. Corbishley is asking for ten million in damages.
On September 15, Napolitano denied all allegations against him and filed a countersuit for defamation against Corbishley.
Napolitano shared the following statement: “ I have never done anything like what the accuser describes, at any time, to anyone, for any reason. I have never had any personal relationship or inappropriate contact or communication of any kind with the man making this accusation. Each and every one of his claims against me are pure fiction. Period.”
All fingers point to you
One sexual assault accusation is a big deal, but two accusations within a month is huge – it also brings down one’s credibility. Only two weeks after Corbishley’s allegations, Napolitano was accused of a second sexual assault incident.
New Jersey resident James Kruzelnick filed a lawsuit against Napolitano. Kruzelnick is seeking fifteen million in damages and a jury trial for multiple instances of sexual assault, harassment, and coercion between the years 2014 and 2017. This was while Kruzelnick was working as a waiter at the New Jersey steakhouse, Mohawk House.
According to Kruzelnick, the abuse started in 2014 when Napolitano followed him into the bathroom, grabbed his buttocks, and said, “you are just so hot.” From then on, Napolitano continued to request Kruzelnick as his waiter. In 2015, Napolitano finally convinced Kruzelnick to come to his house.
Kruzelnick said Napolitano greeted him with his pants down, instructed him to be “daddy,” and asked him to spank him as Napolitano masturbated.
Kruzelnick added that over the next few years, Napolitano forced him to perform “abhorrent” & “repulsive” sexual acts, including an allegation that he was drugged and forced to perform a threesome.
The abuse lasted many years because Napolitano agreed to help Kruzelnick’s brother with his legal troubles if Kruzelnick continued to “give me his full cooperation.” The agreement came to an end in 2017 after Kruzelnick said Napolitano attempted to “forcibly sodomize” him.
According to the lawsuit against Napolitano, the lawyer reads: “While Plaintiff felt humiliated, degraded and abused by Napolitano, he also felt that he was powerless to stop the abuse. If he refused to do what Napolitano wanted him to do, then Napolitano would refuse to help out his brother, and Dallas would go to jail.”
It wasn’t Napolitano
Napolitano’s lawyer, Tom Clare, stated, “These allegations are total fiction, and Judge Napolitano unequivocally denies them. This copycat lawsuit, filed and promoted publicly by the same lawyers representing career criminal Charles Corbishley, is nothing more than a pile-on attempt to smear Judge Napolitano for their own financial gain.”
Are the two victims lying or is Andrew Napolitano the sick & twisted man they claim him to be? The truth will reveal itself in time.
