MONTGOMERY CO. – The Montgomery County Police Department says they have not received a request from any alleged victim or victim’s attorney to initiate a police report or criminal investigation regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The department says they recognize victims of sexual assault may not want to involve law enforcement or initiate a criminal investigation, and they respect that position. The Department, however, says they stand prepared to assist anyone who reports being the victim of a sexual assault.
“Typically, in a sexual assault case, the cooperation of the victim or witnesses is necessary,” said Montgomery County Police in a statement. “As with any criminal investigation, a determination must be made as to the jurisdiction where the alleged offense occurred and the specific details of the event to establish a potential criminal charge.”
Lawyers for Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, said in a statement on Sunday that she has committed to testifying in an open hearing on Thursday about her allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh has denied the allegations and said he wants to testify before the committee.
