Woman who accused Patrick Brown of sexual misconduct now says she wasn t underage
Canada
TORONTO - A woman who accused former Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown of sexual misconduct now says she wasn t underage at the time of the alleged incident but stresses it doesn t change the core of her allegations.

CTV News, which reported the allegations in late January, said in a story late Tuesday that the woman s timeline of the alleged events has changed but the broadcaster still stands by its reporting.

The woman s lawyer, David Butt, told CTV it s not unusual for "collateral details" to fade over time and complainants shouldn t be blamed because it often takes years for them to find the courage to come forward.

The unnamed woman says in a statement that she has been subject to demeaning and misogynistic comments online since CTV first reported her allegations.

CTV has also reported allegations against Brown from a second woman, who also says she stands by her accusations.
