Brittney Higgins emphasised that she was the drunkest that night and had passed out on the couch. She emphasised to the police that she woke up and found Bruce Lehrmann having sex with her.
He just kept going and attested that she didn’t scream but there was obviously an urgency to it. This is what she said in 2021 during an interview. Bruce Lehrmann quickly rushed out of the office after the whole thing. Brittney Higgins said she didn’t utter a word to him.
She slept after the whole event and woke up hours later with her dress adjusted around her waist. She told the police she went home and cried all weekend. Nevertheless, she couldn’t keep it to herself, she opened up to senior staff members that she has been assaulted.
Police separately interviewed Brittney Higgins and she said she was nervous about telling her superiors about what happened as she was scared to death not to lose her job. She emphasised that the distance between her and the man is broad.
On April 19, her junior heard she had reported the case to the police but later withdrew her complaint because she is scared that her job will be at risk. Two years later ‘in 2021’ the case was re-opened in February after conducting interviews with two different journalists.
Brittney Higgins prosecutor told the Australian Capital Territory Supreme Court that the victim was so intoxicated and wouldn’t have had the strength to consent to sex. The accused says there was no form of sexual engagement between the two. Nevertheless, the trial is meant to last for six weeks.
