COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - A complaint filed Friday in Kenton County District Court alleges that there was more than one woman involved in a sex case with a former Clermont County commissioner.
Archie Wilson is facing charges of soliciting prostitution and trafficking in a controlled substance. A warrant was issued for his arrest, but his attorneys and prosecutors reached an agreement over the phone that Wilson will appear in court. His court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 9:30 a.m. In exchange, the warrant for Wilson's arrest was quashed.
The woman involved in the case, Amanda Lay, 26, notified investigators that Wilson paid her to perform sex acts with him while she was an inmate in the Clermont County jail and saw a newspaper photo of Wilson. She told investigators that beginning in June 2011, she engaged in sex with Wilson on multiple occasions at various hotels in Ohio and Northern Kentucky.
According to the complaint, Lay provided the name of another woman who had performed similar services for Wilson after meeting him at the Venus Club in Covington about four years earlier. The second woman was going to introduce Wilson to a third woman in exchange for prescription narcotics.
Wilson agreed to meet the third woman in October at the USA Hotel in Fort Mitchell and said he wanted to see her before delivering the pills. The third woman, who was actually an undercover officer, would not meet him until verifying that he had the pills. As a result, Wilson and the third woman never met, but he gave the pills to the second woman with the instructions to give them to the third woman.
Wilson resigned from the Board of Clermont County Commissioners last week, saying that the decision was based on his physician's advice. He has reportedly been at a mental health facility in Atlanta since fall.
