BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- The wife of former U.S. Senator Scott Brown has revealed she was the victim of a sexual assault while attending Boston University in 1980.

According to the Boston Globe, Gail Huff recounted the assault before a crowd of nearly 200 people at an event for the It Happened to Alexa Foundation. The foundation was created for Alexa Branchini, who was raped at knifepoint inside a BU bathroom in 1999.

Huff said she was also sexually assaulted inside a bathroom. She said she testified against her alleged attacker, but he was freed due to a lack of sufficient evidence. The former television anchor said she lived in fear for many years because he was freed.

In 2011, Scott Brown also revealed he was sexually assaulted while attending a summer camp on Cape Cod.
