no title

No matter what, alleged victims have the right to remain anonymous…

As we reported on November 29, NBC News announced they terminated Matt Lauer for "inappropriate sexual behavior" regarding an alleged incident that began at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

To this day, the identity of Lauer's accuser has not been revealed… and that's exactly how she wants it.

On Friday, the alleged victim's lawyer Ari Wilkenfeld spoke to NBC News where he says his client is "terrified" she will be outed.

"My client is terrified, and she does live in constant fear that people are going to track her down and figure out who she is… She feels badly for the many other women who are suspected of being her—who are also being hounded and harassed."

When the unnamed woman made her claims to NBC, she wanted the company to "do the right thing," and to keep her identity confidential. However, Wilkenfeld says the network hasn't been doing a good job with the latter.

One morning on June 8, the then-24-year-old received a message from Lauer on the company's instant messaging system out of the blue. She says he wrote:

Naturally, the question many have is, how did no one at NBC know anything about the behavior of one of their biggest on-air personalities?
