New William Kennedy Smith Assault Charge

AUGUST 26--William Kennedy Smith's former personal assistant claims that she was sexually assaulted by the Kennedy cousin following a night of partying five years ago.

In a Cook County Circuit Court lawsuit filed yesterday, Audra Soulias alleges that 43-year-old Kennedy Smith--who beat a Florida rape charge in 1991--apologized to her the day after the incident. "It was not your fault," Soulias, 28, claims Kennedy Smith told her in a voice mail message. "I have a problem."

Soulias is seeking in excess of $50,000 in damages. (7 pages)
