GEORGETOWN — A Scott County school board member has been charged with sexual harassment a tenant.
Luther Mason, 85, who was charged with sexually harassing a female tenant who resides in his rental property, has denied the charges.
Mason was accused of both physical and non-physical sexual harassment by Amy Burden, who leases Mason’s property on Delaplain Road.
According to Burden, Mason put his hand on her leg without her permission and made an obscene sexual comment to her. She also alleges Mason would often show up at the property unannounced and without her permission, one time after Burden’s 17-year-old daughter “had gotten out of the shower.”
One of the inappropriate comments was tape-recorded and used as evidence in the case.
Mason says he was at the property to repair a roof. He was served a criminal summons to appear in Scott District Court on Sept. 6.
