Millionaire Trump supporter John Joseph Boswell was fined $50 after pleading guilty assaulting black immigrant hotel chambermaid
The millionaire CEO pled guilty to misdemeanor sexual abuse in a DC court last month after allegedly assaulting two maids in his hotel suite, touching them inappropriately on January 19, 2017.
The first maid, who is an African immigrant and still works at the hotel, froze when she was grabbed and said ‘sorry sir’ before another cleaner came in.
The Post reports the maid immediately jumped away from Boswell when her colleague entered the room, before she ran out physically shaking.
The second maid, according to the police report, was then also touched inappropriately by the married father-of-three.
The police report states that Boswell ‘placed his hand on the top of her shoulder’ while she was making the bed. But the maid then ordered him to sit down.
Neither woman reported what incident, however the next day another co-worker told a manager and then police were contacted.
The Boswell was then arrested at his hotel room about 6.30pm on January 20 and hauled away by police. He was released from the DC Superior Court on January 21, and when he left the courthouse he was initially thought by a crowd outside to be one of the 200 or so anti-Trump protesters arrested on the day of the inauguration.

However, someone quickly who had been court for the arraignment shouted out he was a ‘sex offender’, which prompted the crowd to quickly turn.
Boswell was then pelted with fruit and other garbage. He was hit in the face with an orange slice.
Initially Boswell insisted he was innocent by claiming he ‘patted’ the maid on the ‘lower back’ in a ‘friendly gesture’ However, during the trial he pled guilty
But in an email sent to Boswell’s legal team, assistant US attorney Vivian Kim painted a different picture.
‘He took advantage of [her] while she was working, vulnerable, and alone,’ Kim wrote, according to the Post.
Boswell was sentenced to 10 days behind bars and six months probation, but the jail time was suspended.
Boswell pled guilty to misdemeanor sexual abuse in a DC court in April after allegedly touching two maids in his hotel suite inappropriately on January 19
Judge Michael Ryan also granted Boswell special dispensation to be allowed to travel out of the country while he was on probation. He then went on holiday to the Bahamas in April, and is reportedly set to visit the Dominican Republic later this month.
In contrast to Boswell’s unfettered jet-setting within months of the sexual assault, one of the maid’s has been forced to move apartments after receiving an ‘aggressive’ visit from the CEO’s legal team, the Post reports.
