An Oswego landlord and area attraction owner is being sued over claims that tenants were subject to sexual harassment and unwanted sexual contact.
The CNY Fair Housing Agency's suit says that Doug Waterbury has sexually harassed a number of female tenants for many years. The suit alleges that Waterbury would prey on women desperate for housing and offer them housing benefits or rental terms in exchange for sexual favors. The agency says they have been investigating complaints about Waterbury for several months.
Waterbury owns about 50 properties in the Oswego area and is the owner of the Sterling Renaissance Festival and Sylvan Beach Amusement Park.
