Village Mayor Denies Sexual Imposition Allegation

May 27, 2014

The Mayor of the southwest Ohio village of Harveysburg is due back in court on June 11th after pleading not guilty to a sexual imposition charge.

75-year-old Richard Verga says if he did touch a female village employee prior to a village council meeting last month, it was accidental. Verga has refused council's request to take a leave of absence pending resolution of the case.
