Recent reporting has further established how willing a participant the parent of an underaged victim was in the case of Chris Cuomo’s former producer and colleague John Griffin.
According to the Daily Mail, 48-year-old Heather Carriker accepted over $3,000 USD from former CNN producer John Griffin to essentially pimp out her 9-year-old daughter in engaging in explicit activities at a ski cabin in Vermont.
Police in Henderson, Nevada where the family is from, arrested Heather Carriker in August 2020.
"The woman added that she had brought several sex devices with her on the trip and used them with Griffin and forced the girl to take part," said VTDigger.com in describing what the mother did.
It was a shock to CNN’s system when they finally booted their longtime personality Chris Cuomo earlier this month. However, that soon became the tip of the network’s iceberg of scandals.
But then, along came Cuomo’s former producer John Griffin. Who last week was arrested by the FBI for "three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity."
It’s the indictment in the case against Griffin that it’s explained how the CNN staffer tried instructing mothers with underaged children to be "sexually submissive." Griffin managed to get a mother and her 9-year-old to fly from Nevada to Boston in July 2020, and then drove them to his home in Vermont for unlawful sexual activity.
This occasion amongst other instances of solicitation undertaken on the part of the former CNN producer. CNN announced on Monday they fired Griffin, someone who offered "virtual training" to underaged minors and their parents about engaging in sexual activity.
Further background by Fox News indicates that John Griffin was facing "marital trouble" with his wife Allyson and their three children. The couple separated and Griffin rented an apartment after moving out.
Upon learning the news of her estranged husband’s activities, Allyson Griffin appeared disheveled at the audacity of the matter. Deeper in the piece it’s said "the couple used a limited liability corporation to purchase the ski chalet in Ludlow, Vermont."
It's another fragment of a picture that authorities are still trying to piece together.
