HOUSTON (AP) A federal judge accused of sexual harassment by his former case manager has been indicted on charges of abusive sexual contact and attempted aggravated sexual abuse.
U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent was indicted Thursday on two counts of abusive sexual contact and one count of attempted aggravated sexual abuse.
An agreement with prosecutors will allow Kent to surrender Wednesday for an initial court appearance, the Houston Chronicle reported in its Web site.
A federal criminal investigation began in November 2007 after a former case manager complained about Kent. She said the judge and often made obscene suggestions during the six years she worked for him.
