BOSTON – A Massachusetts grand jury has indicted a state senator on charges he allegedly sexually harassed four women one day last month.
Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone said Tuesday that state Sen. James Marzilli faces charges of attempting to commit indecent assault and battery, annoying and accosting people of the opposite sex, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
An arraignment date hasn't been set.
Prosecutors say the 50-year-old Democrat made sexually explicit remarks to the women and attempted to sexually touch one of them.
Police arrested him on June 3 in Lowell shortly after his encounter with the fourth woman. He entered a hospital two days later with an undisclosed illness. He said he wouldn't seek re-election.
