CNN has fired John Griffin after learning he lured girls as young as 7-years-old to his home for “sexual subservience training.” The news producer was arrested in Connecticut on Friday and brought to a Vermont federal grand jury to face charges. The news network fired him on Monday.

They released a statement after they learned about the charges against Griffin and said, “The charges against Mr. Griffin are deeply disturbing. We learned of his arrest Friday afternoon and terminated his employment Monday.”

John Griffin is charged with three counts of “induce minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity,” according to the Department of Justice. The former news producer is facing a minimum 10 years in prison for each of the three counts.

According to court documents, Griffin tried to persuade mothers to allow their young daughters to have sex with him at his Vermont ski home. The documents said that Griffin “sought to persuade parents to allow him to train their daughters to be sexually submissive.” This included lessons in c*ck worship and spanking.

The senior CNN producer allegedly tried to lure at least four girls to his Vermont home. The DOJ has evidence that at least one of those girls made it to the Vermont ski home and participated in Griffin’s sexual acts. Court documents show that they were ages 16, 14, 13, and 9. Griffin also allegedly said that a “woman is a woman regardless of her age.”

Prosecutors said that Griffin would regularly communicate with the mothers of these young girls and ask for sexual favors via Kik, Google Hangouts and over text.

One of the text messages said, “One of the big lies of this society is that women are delicate innocent angels, and they are in actuality, naturally, the dirtiest sluts possible, in EVERY metric.”

Griffin allegedly paid over $3,000 in plane tickets for Heather Carriker and her 9-year-old daughter to fly from Nevada to Boston and meet him. He picked them up in his Tesla and drove them to Vermont, where the little girl was allegedly, “directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity,” according to authorities.

Heather Carriker was arrested in August 2020 for multiple charges of child abuse, including two counts of sexual assault against a child under 14. Reports show that the mother brought multiple sex toys on their trip to Vermont.

He also allegedly proposed an online video training for another mother and her 14-year-old daughter in April 2020. Griffin told this mother that he “planned to instruct the 14-year-old and her mother to remove their clothing and touch each other,” while on the webcam.

Before he was fired, John Griffin bragged on his LinkedIn that he worked “shoulder to shoulder,” with Chris Cuomo, who was recently fired from CNN for his involvement in his brother Andrew Cuomo’s sex scandal.

Chris Cuomo has not commented on the termination of John Griffin from CNN. Griffin previously worked for ABC News, Fox News, and CBS before getting his position at CNN.

Fox News reported that John Griffin was having marital problems with his wife months before he was arrested by the FBI. The news producer had moved out of his Connecticut home and was staying in an apartment, according to the man that took care of his boat.

Recent photos of Griffin’s wife Allyson showed her angrily talking on the phone and smoking cigarettes. A guard who was in charge of the entrance to the Wilson Point enclave where the Griffin family lives, said that Allyson Griffin looked upset on the Tuesday after her husband was arrested and told him not to let any media into the area.

FBI agents are trying to make John Griffin forfeit any possessions that were used to help lure young girls for sex, including his Tesla, the Vermont ski house and his Mercedes.
