    I am nauseated. I hope that jerk gets raped and tortured in jail. He deserves no mercy.

    I'm praying for Jasmine. She didn't deserve this. No one does.

    For some reason I thought he worked at the nightclub as security.

    Hope she gets some justice and a fresh start. What a horrible situation. And I hope the other young lady he assaulted gets some healing as well, even if she won't get any justice personally.

    I remember hearing about an artist cancelling a performance there shortly after this happened. I'm wondering if others are doing the same. If so, it may only be a matter of time before they're out of business.

    I saw that as well. I think his social media pages said he was in security and maybe people assumed he was working the club that night? IDK but I definitely heard he was a security guard there which I'm guessing isn't true or that would be mentioned in the lawsuit against the club.

    Judge denies Opera sexual assault suspect bond

    1 hour ago
    By Raisa Habersham, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
    Feb 14, 2019

    A Fulton County judge denied bond Thursday to a man accused in two sexual assaults, including one inside a popular Midtown Nightclub.

    Dominique Williams, 34, faces an aggravated sodomy charge in an alleged sexual assault against Jasmine Eiland inside Opera nightclub. In that case, authorities said Williams sexually assaulted Eiland on the dance floor before taking her to an outside patio area and attacking her again. Eiland inadvertently filmed her attack on Facebook Live.

    On Thursday, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Rachel Krause heard arguments from prosecutors and Williamsʼ attorney and decided he was “a significant risk to the community.”

    At a preliminary hearing Wednesday, a Fulton County judge added a rape charge against Williams after an Atlanta police officer testified Williams sexually assaulted another woman at his South Fulton home in September.

    Atlanta police Detective Katie Riester, the lead investigator in the nightclub case, told a magistrate judge the second alleged victim came forward after learning of the Opera case. The woman told police she went on a date with Williams and had drinks with him at a restaurant. At one point, the woman went to the restroom, came back and finished her drink.

    The woman said she soon felt woozy and weak, Riester testified. Williams then offered to have her wait at his place until she felt comfortable driving home. The woman agreed to go to Williamsʼ South Fulton home, Riester said.

    “(The victim) said they were having good conversation, laughing and then the next thing she remembered was waking up in his bed,” Riester said.

    When the woman woke up, she saw Williams in the bathroom and heard the sound of him taking off a condom, Riester testified. She also noticed her one-piece outfit was torn. When the victim asked what happened, Williams told her he was rubbing on her when it ripped, Riester testified.

    The woman grabbed her things and left. The woman told Riester she did not feel comfortable reporting the sexual assault at the time.

    Earlier this week, Eiland filed a lawsuit against Opera nightclub alleging there was no adequate security the night she was sexually assaulted.

    The nightclubʼs attorney, Bryan Knight, said the venue is cooperating with the investigation. “The safety of all our guests is our main priority and we have always upheld the highest standard of security each night.”

    Obviously date rape drugs like Rohypnol and anything else that would put somebody out ain't new but finding out there's a second victim makes me wonder if dude has just been doing this for years or he was inspired by Bill Cosby.

    Thanks. I watched for about 12 minutes. It didn't seem like it was going anywhere but my guess is she's trying to poke holes in the investigator's testimony by finding something she wasn't sure about even if it was insignificant. I don't really get why her knowledge of the number of rooms in the club is relevant when she made it clear that she wasn't there when the crime took place. There's video of him dragging her off the dance floor so... I guess I'm just frustrated with the direction of it but I didn't hear anything one way or the other.

    FOUR WOMEN IN TOTAL HAVE ALLEGED SEXUAL ASSAULT AT OPERA ATLANTA
    Jasmine Eiland's live stream rape incident may not have been an isolated occurrence.
    JOHN CAMERON | FEB 27, 2019


    [​IMG]

    Last week it came to light that Jasmine Eiland had filed a lawsuit against Opera Atlanta after she captured her own apparent rape at the nightclub on Facebook Live. Now it has come to light that she was one of four alleged victims to report sexual assault at Opera in the past two years.

    According to police reports, a woman was allegedly fondled while unconscious at the club in March of 2017. Another female patron alleged that a man had attempted to forcefully penetrate her in November of the same year, and then that December a man allegedly forced another female attendee to have sex with him in Opera's bathroom.

    All of the aforementioned incidents took place before new management took over the nightclub in the October of last year. The Atlanta Police Department has said that instances of sexual assault are not typical of nightclubs.

    Neither Joshua Palmer nor Chris Stewart of Stewart Trial Attorneys have disclosed the amount of Jasmine Eiland lawsuit against Opera Nightclub at the time of writing.

    Man accused of sexual assault during Facebook Live video indicted on rape charges in separate incident
    March 27, 2019

    A man accused of attacking a woman inside a popular Midtown nightclub has been indicted on rape and aggravated sexual battery charges, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said.

    Dominique Williams, 34, was indicted by a grand jury Monday on an aggravated battery charge in the alleged Jan. 19 attack on Jasmine Eiland inside Opera nightclub. The indictment has not yet been uploaded to the Fulton County Superior Court’s system.

    Attorney Chris Stewart, who represents Eiland, said the indictment was “another step toward justice and protecting women in Atlanta.”

    Atlanta police said Williams sexually accosted Eiland on the dance floor before taking her to an outside patio area and attacking her again. Eiland, who was at the club celebrating her birthday, inadvertently streamed video of the attack on Facebook Live. Eiland later filed a lawsuit against the nightclub alleging they lacked security that night.

    It is the policy of the AJC to not name alleged victims of sexual crimes, but in this case Eiland chose to publicly discuss the incident. "I figured that if I had not come forward and put my face forward, what would the next woman do," she said when announcing the lawsuit.

    Williams was also indicted on a rape charge for an incident alleged to have occurred at his South Fulton home in September. Atlanta police Detective Katie Riester, the lead investigator in the nightclub case, testified Feb. 14 that the victim told police she went on a date with Williams and had drinks with him at a restaurant. At one point, the woman went to the restroom, came back and finished her drink. The woman said she soon felt woozy and weak, Riester said.

    Williams then offered to have her wait at his place until she felt comfortable driving home, Reister said. The woman agreed to go to Williams’ home where they had “good conversation.”

    “...Then the next thing she remembered was waking up in his bed,” Riester said.

    The woman came forward after learning of Eiland’s assault.

    “She’s always wanted justice for herself and Jasmine,” the victim’s attorney, Gerald Griggs, said. “She’s hopeful now that (Williams) has been charged.”

    Williams remains in Fulton County Jail without bond.

    I hope more women (because we know there are more) come forward so that he stays in prison for the rest of his natural life.
