A woman has come forward after filing a lawsuit against Atlanta nightclub owners after she was allegedly sexually assaulted. A stream of the assault was captured on Facebook Live. More details inside...

An Illinois woman has come forward to speak out after she filed a lawsuit against an Atlanta nightclub claiming negligence.

30-year-old Jasmine Eiland filed the lawsuit against Opera Atlanta, as well as the owners, security companies and security personnel in Fulton County State Court after she was allegedly sexually assaulted in a club. The alleged crime was captured via Facebook Live and went viral, sparking yet another discussion about sexual assault and what it actually looks like.

 

 

In the lawsuit, she claims the club failed to provide adequate safety and security when the alleged attacked went down last month. She claims she was sexually assaulted twice that night - once on the dance floor and again in an area that was off-limits during the August Alsina concert. The man who allegedly committed the crime turned himself into police after a warrant for his arrest was issued last month.

In a recent news conference, Jasmine and her attorney L. Chris Stewart, said the club was not staffed with proper security, and due to Opera's negligence, she became a victim of sexual assault.

“Something like that should not happen in a nightclub,” Eiland’s lawyer L. Chris Stewart said in a phone interview. "She went from coherent, having fun ... to being out of it," he said. "They chose profits over protecting the people of Atlanta."

We're not posting the video evidence here, but her lawyer posted a clip of the Facebook Live stream that captured the assault. In the clip, you can hear Jasmine yelling, "No! No! Stop! Oh, God Help!" She then begins screaming and you can hear a man's voice telling her to "be quiet" and "chill." You can view the clip at your OWN discretion here.

CNN reports:

A suspect is in jail. Dominique Williams, 34, turned himself in two weeks ago after police obtained a warrant for his arrest on a charge of aggravated sodomy.

An attorney for Williams, Shequel Ross, said in late January in a statement posted to her Instagram account that he maintains his innocence.

"These allegations are false, and the evidence will prove our client should have never been charged." Williams appeared in court Wednesday for a preliminary hearing where a judge found there was probable cause for the sodomy allegation and for a new charge of rape in a 2018 case involving another woman.

Prosecutors will take the cases to a grand jury.

Dominique Williams was booked into Fulton County Jail on January 29th and remains there since no bond had been set.

In the news conference, Jasmine said she came forward to become the face of sexual assault in an effort to help other women who may fall victim to sexual predators.

"I'm going to continue to fight. I'm a victim but I'm a survivor as well," she said. "I figured that, had I not come forward and put my face forward, what would the next woman do?" she said.

Emotions took over as she spoke to the media. See the emotional conference below:
