Wildflour Bakery Manager Accused of Sexual Assault, Arrested on Sex Crime Charges

A manager at Wildflour Bakery in Chantilly, Virginia has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting two adult employees with special needs. 73-year-old Alberto Figueiredo has been charged with object sexual penetration and forcible sodomy.

A female employee told her parents that Figueiredo sexually assaulted her, which led to his arrest on January 30. In February, a second female employee told her parents about an alleged sexual assault by Figueiredo. This led to a further investigation by the police.

Figueiredo was arrested a second time on Thursday, February 13 at his home in Fairfax. He is being held without bond.

He had been working at the bakery for over ten years. The business regularly hires adults with special needs.

Fairfax County police have asked anyone with related information or who may have been abused by Figueiredo to call detectives at 703-246-7800.

Legal Recourse For Workplace Sexual Assault Victims

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin is an experienced sex abuse lawyer who represents victims and their families in civil sex abuse lawsuits. Kevin has some general info to share on the legal rights of those who have been sexually harassed or sexually assaulted in the workplace:

No one should ever have to worry about unwanted sexual attention in the workplace. We’re all entitled to feel safe during our workdays. But sadly, this is not always the case for everyone. Sexual assault and sexual harassment in the workplace are major problems. When an employee is sexually assaulted by a coworker or supervisor, it’s important that the victim is aware of their legal rights.

In workplace sexual assault cases, it’s important to investigate both the alleged perpetrator and the business itself. In some of these cases, the sexual assault may not have happened if not for negligence by the business owner.

For example, a business owner could be considered negligent for a sexual assault of an employee by a supervisor if that supervisor had previously been reported for sexual harassment, but no action was taken to address those reports.

In cases of negligence, victims of workplace sexual assault may have grounds for a lawsuit against their employer.
