From victim’s emailed statement

“[Tarun Tejpal] sent me text messages insinuating that I misconstrued ‘a drunken banter.’ That is not what happened. Banter does not involve forcing yourself on someone.”

“… [H]e lashed out at me, and I became truly terrified of what he would do. I avoided him in all situations except in rooms full of people”

“… [H]e said, ‘Well, this is the easiest way for you to keep your job.’ I was walking still faster, blinking back tears.”
