Charles Pugh

Charles Pugh was extradited from New York to face criminal sexual conduct charges in a case from more than a decade ago involving a then-14-year-old boy. Pugh, 44, was arrested in New York, where he now lives. Prosecutors said he engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior with a teen starting in 2003 when Pugh was a reporter and anchor at a Detroit TV station. Pugh was elected to Detroit's City Council in 2009, but quit in 2013. In a separate case, a federal jury in 2015 awarded $250,000 to a young man who accused Pugh of sexually harassing him while he was in office and serving as a mentor.
