Vanessa also stated Fairfax initially put his hand behind her neck. Later, he forcefully pushed her head towards his lap. Meanwhile, the author then realized that Justin had opened his belt and unzipped his pants.

He then pushed his private part into Tyson’s mouth. The author was utterly shocked and terrified when Mr. Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him. According to Fairfax, he thought that this violated sexual act was consensual.

However, it was very clear from Vanessa’s side that she did not want to engage in oral sex. She never gave any form of consent to the lieutenant governor.
