According to a report from the Daily Advertiser, a former Lafayette City-Parish councilman has been accused of bullying an employee into having sex.

A recently filed federal lawsuit alleges that SMILE ex-CEO Chris Williams pressured an employee into having sex and attempted to bribe her with a promotion and $10,000 in exchange for her silence. A bizarre twist in the lawsuit also claims that Williams kept a voodoo doll of the victim wrapped in one of her own socks in his desk.

The victim's attorney also detailed that Williams began harassing the woman not long after he was hired in 2017.
