Jackie Fuchs (Fox) of the Runaways talks about Kim Fowley and the rape she remembers differently from bandmates Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. The impact of her sexual assault at the hands of her manager in a room full of friends and associates, and the misconceptions about the 1970s scene of sex, drugs, and rock and roll are all explained in this uncensored discussion. The strange and scary quaalude connection that Fowley had with Bill Cosby, and the ‘bystander effect’ that sexual assault has on witnesses is explored with attorney Mike Cavalluzzi, in this Crime Time hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.
