Two former maintenance workers accused in the sex-for-repairs scandal that engulfed Baltimore public housing are facing criminal charges.
According to CBS News, former Baltimore City Housing Authority handymen Charles Coleman and Doug Hussy were charged with second-degree assault, fourth-degree sexual offense, harassment and misconduct in office.
The two were accused of refusing repairs at public housing unless female tenants had sex with them. The initial class action lawsuit in the case had 19 women, but grew to 56 last month. A civil settlement worth up to $8 million was reached earlier this year, but the criminal investigation continued.
