Jaycee Dugard Dragged into Big Ben Rape Lawsuit

7/15/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jaycee Lee Dugard -- the woman who was held captive and raped for a period of 18 years -- has been injected into a new lawsuit filed by the Nevada woman who claims she was raped by Ben Roethlisberger.

Andrea McNulty has just filed new legal docs against Harrah's -- her former employer -- claiming the company went on a "witch hunt" to force her out of her job after she filed her lawsuit against the NFL star, in which she claims she was raped at Harrah's in Lake Tahoe in 2008.

In the documents, McNulty claims she was essentially forced to resign -- and in her lawsuit, she describes packing up her desk ... where she kept a photo of Jaycee Lee Dugard.

McNulty explains, "I love [the picture] because she has been through such trauma but if you look closely she still has a twinkle in her eye." She claims she kept the photo on her desk because "it gives me strength."

McNulty's case against Big Ben is currently on hold -- while a judge decides where the case should be tried.

The unemployment checks must be running out. This is also the week of the Tahoe tournament so I guess that's a coincidence also.

The loon has issues. When she is exposed for the liar she is (just like the drunken under 21 bar whores in Georgia were) I hope they deport her demented ass back to Canada.

Jaycee is absolutely a hero and a role model to other abuse victims. It was her strength that carried her through this ordeal. She is a survivor!

Why are you using a picture of Elizabeth Smart in this story? That middle picture is Elizabeth, not Jaycee.

I think this case should be settled before Ben gets back on the playing field, any playing field.

Maybe the authorities need to go back to where Ben went to High School and speak with teachers, friends, teammates, ex-girl friends, tutors, etc., I think Ben has something to "hide" and not everyone is after his money they just want to forget. Maybe if the authorities did deep enough they will find that pattern of behavior and justice will finally be done. Men like Ben who continually commit sexual assaults on women will continue to do so until they are stopped. Screw the money put the man in jail for his crime.
