The disgraced former CEO of CBS has been hit with new accusations regarding his sexual assault saga. The former CEO apparently destroyed evidence in an attempt to mislead investigators.

According to Fox News:

Former CBS CEO Les Moonves, who resigned in September following a slew of sexual misconduct allegations made against him, "destroyed evidence" related to the case, according to a report released Tuesday night.

Moonves, 69, was trying to save his reputation at the network, and his multimillion-dollar severance package, when he "misled investigators" working on behalf of the company, The New York Times reported, citing a 59-page report drafted for the CBS board.

The report, according to The Times, said Moonves "engaged in multiple acts of serious nonconsensual sexual misconduct in and outside of the workplace, both before and after he came to CBS in 1995.”

The document was drafted by lawyers hired by CBS and reportedly says the network has justification to deny Moonves his $120 million severance package.

Moonves ultimately resigned from CBS after multiple women came forward with allegations of sexual assault.
