Amanda Gonzalez, 22, alleges that 73-year-old Richard Simon created a sexually hostile work environment by making inappropriate comments about her body. Simon allegedly told Gonzalez that she had a “big butt” and that her body was “voluptuous.”
Gonzalez claims that she complained about the sexual harassment to Simon’s business partner, but he allegedly brushed off her complaints and told her that “his penis doesn’t work.”
Finally, after allegedly enduring several months of harassment, Gonzalez claims that Simon grabbed her crotch while they were in his office and told her, “I can’t wait to eat it.”
Gonzalez reported this incident to the police, and Simon eventually pleaded guilty to one count of midemeanor sexual abuse.
