Another local Democratic official has been charged in a criminal case that includes allegations of sexual assault and satanic rituals.
Diana Palmer, first vice chairwoman of the Durham County Democratic Party, turned herself in to Durham police this afternoon. Palmer, 44, of Cottage Woods Court, was charged with one count of accessory after the fact of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
Bill Thomas, a defense lawyer in the Duke lacrosse case, is representing Palmer and is disturbed by the accusations.
“Ms. Palmer vehemently denies any association whatsoever with a satanic cult,” Thomas said this afternoon while his client was being processed at the jail. “She further denies any knowledge of a crime being perpetrated by the persons previously arrested.”
Joseph Scott Craig, 25, and Joy Suzanne Johnson, 30, both of 2305 Albany St., are in the Durham County jail.
Craig, a dispatcher at Allied Waste Industries, has been charged with second-degree rape, second-degree forcible sexual offense, three counts of second-degree kidnapping and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. Two of the kidnapping charges were filed Tuesday.
Two charges of aiding and abetting filed against Johnson on Tuesday reveal new details of what the woman in their house alleged.
The warrants accuse Johnson of “instigating and encouraging” her husband as he handcuffed a man and forced him “into a dog cage, leaving him there for hours, terrorizing him.”
Johnson was charged Friday with two other counts of aiding and abetting. The charges stem from accusations by a woman who listed the couple’s home as her address.
