Liberal staffer Meinzer facing more charges
New sexual assault allegations emerge against former Eggleton chief of staff
Two new women have stepped forward to accuse a senior Liberal staffer of sexually assaulting them.
Robert Meinzer, who until his arrest last summer served as Senator Art Eggleton's chief of staff, sat quietly in Toronto court Monday as five new charges against him were read out.
The new charges include two counts of sexual assault, two charges of overcoming resistance by choking and one charge of criminal harassment. The crimes are alleged to have occurred in 2005 and 2007.
The women, who cannot be named, are both Ottawa residents.
Meinzer, 39, is already accused of nine offences relating to an alleged rape and extortion that occurred last summer -- including breaking and entering, assault, forcible confinement, sexual assault, choking, assault with a weapon, extortion and anal intercourse
