BOSTON — No charges have been filed, but accusations have been made that Gov. Charlie Baker's son Andrew allegedly sexually assaulted a woman on a flight on Wednesday.
Baker's son, known as A.J., was allegedly accused of the assault by a fellow passenger on the flight from Washington, D.C. to Boston.
Sources tell Boston 25 News a female passenger accused A.J. of groping her breast on the flight.
The alleged incident took place on June 20, aboard a JetBlue flight.
Baker's office sent a statement to Boston 25 News, saying "this is a personal matter for the Baker Family and A.J. will cooperate with any request from authorities."
JetBlue responded to requests for confirmation with a statement.
"On June 20, the crew of flight 1345 were notified of an incident between customers shortly before landing in Boston," the statement read. "The aircraft landed at approximately 11 p.m. local time where it was met by local authorities.”
Massachusetts State Police say charges have not been filed, and they are not investigating since it is not in the department's jurisdiction.
A.J. Baker's attorney, Roberto Braceras, released a statement on the allegations.
"A.J. is fully cooperating and looks forward to a resolution of this matter," Braceras said.
