SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Six more women have stepped forward to accuse prominent conductor Charles Dutoit of sexually assaulting them in the United States, France and Canada, including a musician who says the maestro raped her in 1988.
The new accusers said they were angered by Dutoit's denial of an Associated Press report last month of four accusations of sexual assault and also wanted to show the scope of his inappropriate behavior during his globe-trotting career. They said the Swiss-born conductor attacked them in Paris, Montreal and the United States over a four-decade period, starting in the late 1970s.
Through his attorney, Dutoit issued a "categorical and complete denial' of the new accusations and said he was especially "appalled and sickened" that someone had accused him of rape.
