As reported by the Statesman:
Two sisters have sued the founder of a Travis County highway construction company, saying that he sexually abused them as children, promised to pay them if they didn't file criminal or civil charges, and then stopped the payments after the legal time limit for pressing the charges expired.J.D. Abrams LP, contributers to Gov. Rick Perry and other tollers, signed a secret deal (Comprehensive Development Agreement - CDA) with the CTRMA to build 183A, along with their partners California-based Granite Construction Co under the consortium name Hill Country Constructors in 2004. 183A opened on March 3, 2007 with a cost of about $238 million for 4.5 miles of toll road.
Jackie Fowler, 35, and Jeni Vejil Abrams, 31, sued J.D. Abrams, the 79-year-old founder of J.D. Abrams LP on April 3. They also sued his son, Jon F. Abrams, 56, alleging that he sexually assaulted Fowler in her childhood. There is videotaped evidence of the abuse, according to the lawsuit.
The sisters are being represented by attorneys Robert Kizer and Roy Minton.
"Something needs to stop people like this, that have so much money and so much power, from doing this to children," Kizer said.
The lawsuit says there is a videotape of J.D. Abrams assaulting the sisters when they were children.
