Miranda Pacchiana, the younger sister of Mythbusters star Adam Savage, alleges Savage frequently raped her while the two were children growing up in Sleepy Hollow, New York. Pacchiana, 51, says the abuse occurred when she was between 7 and 10 years old and Savage was between 9 and 12

While her lead attorney, Jordan Mersin, added, “The prolific abuse by Mr. Savage as alleged in the complaint has caused irreparable damage to my client that she will live with for the rest of her life. Today is the first step in the direction of healing and justice.”
