Criminal charges against a criminal attorney for harassing potential clients

This isn’t a workplace harassment case (the vast majority of which involve civil, not criminal charges), but it’s still interesting.

A Delaware criminal defense attorney has been charged with two counts of sexual harassment. The two women who complained alleged that the attorney made sexual remarks, touched them, and offered legal services in exchange for sexual favors. One woman was a former client and one a future potential client who was looking for an attorney to represent her fiancé.

At least one of the women complained to the Delaware State Bar. I’d be shocked if the attorney isn’t brought up on disciplinary charges with the state bar as well as facing criminal charges.
