Achieving such elevated academic standards at a young age might seem like a totemic moment in the lives of 15- and 16-year-olds, but what is its lasting impact? Early yesterday evening, a story broke on Bloomberg alleging Uber investor and Hyperloop One co-founder Shervin Pishevar had used his position of power to make unwanted sexual advances to at least five women.It was also suggested that Hatt received more leniency because she was a woman and the language used in court to describe the victim wrongly implied he was to blame.Rob Ross, defending, said his client was a petite, immature woman and that the victim was very mature for his age.
The prominent Silicon Valley investor was arrested in London over a rape allegation earlier this year.
Hatt was aged 20 when the incident took place last November.
Child abuse charities have said the judge's decision to impose a suspended sentence "sends a deeply worrying signal" and that the babysitter had "escaped extremely lightly".
Geidt, however, declined to give comment about the alleged incident.
One person in attendance of the party and whom Pishevar’s spokesman referred to Bloomberg for the story said she did not witness the incident but didn’t think Pishevar would be able to touch Geidt as he had a drink in one hand and was holding the leash of the pony he brought to the party in the other.
