Pugh doesn't want to pay up in harassment case

DETROIT (AP) -- An ex-Detroit City Council member accused of sexually harassing a young man while he was in office says he shouldn't have to pay $250,000 awarded by a jury.
The federal court jury this month found Charles Pugh inflicted emotional distress when he offered money to the former student to make a sexually explicit video. The young man, now 20, was a teen at the time and Pugh served as his mentor in 2012.
In court documents, Pugh says he doesn't have to pay because the young man already is getting $350,000 from the Detroit Public Schools.
Bill Seikally, the young man's lawyer, tells the Detroit Free Press that Pugh should pay.
Pugh quit city government in 2013 and moved to New York when allegations surfaced, saying he was embarrassed.
