Anti-Flag’s Justin Sane Sued for Raping Fan in 2010 (Pitchfork)

Pitchfork’s Jazz Monroe quotes Dr. Ann Olivarius in his coverage of recent lawsuit alleging rape against Anti-Flag frontman Justin Sane. 

I predict that in five years the music industry will be viewed the same way as the Catholic Church or the Boy Scouts—a powerful force that also enabled and shielded sexual predators for decades. ‘Drugs, sex & rock ‘n roll’ was a reality that meant a lot of young women got abused. The bands had handlers who made it all happen and executives who covered it all up because so much money depended on it.

Dr. Ann Olivarius, an attorney for Sarhadi, said in her own statement.
