MILWAUKEE COUNTY -- New charges have been filed against 49-year-old Bradford Harrington -- a man who was already facing a number of charges, accused of contacting prostitutes in jail, putting money in a jail account for at least one of them, and getting women high on drugs, having sex with them and recording it. There are 10 victims making accusations against him.
The new charges filed against Harrington on March 18th are as follows:
There are now a total of three open criminal cases against Harrington.
On March 15th, 29 charges were filed against Harrington:
On January 25th, three counts of second degree sexual assault of an intoxicated victim and one count of capturing an image of nudity were filed against Harrington.
The new criminal complaint, filed on March 18th, describes what police say Harrington allegedly did with victim #10.
Bradford Harrington's home in Bay View
According to the complaint, the victim was receiving treatment for addictions to crack cocaine and heroin, and allegedly agreed to have sex with Harrington for money at Harrington's home in Bay View.
Harrington allegedly offered the victim drugs, and drove her to buy them.
What the victim didn't realize, according to the complaint, is what nine others say they were too high to realize -- that Harrington took photos and videos of them nude and during sex.
Harrington has denied the allegations against him.
"I didn't do anything. It's all false," Harrington told FOX6 News.
Allegations against Bradford Harrington
The most recent alleged victim who has come forward told police "she was surprised it took so long for law enforcement to catch on," and that Harrington believes he is "rescuing females by enabling their drug addiction and giving them money specifically for heroin."
The victim said Harrington is "(expletive) weird with this rescue (expletive)." This victim told police she thought Harrington's expertise in computers allowed him to find out a lot of personal information about her and would have information about her and her family.
In January, Harrington was charged with three counts of second degree sexual assault of an intoxicated victim, and one count of capturing an image of nudity -- accused of putting money in an inmate's jail account, scouting for women with prostitution charges, taking at least one for a heroin fix and having sex with her and recording it.
That complaint says officials noticed inmates charged with prostitution were having frequent and extensive contact with Harrington. In fact, police say 633 phone calls were made from inmates to Harrington's phone.
One woman told investigators Harrington allegedly looked at a site called "Jailbase" every day to find new inmates to contact, sometimes putting money in alleged prostitutes' jail accounts so they would owe him favors.
The complaint says Harrington admitted to keeping pre-filled Narcan syringes in the trunk of his car and vials in his kitchen because he "doesn't want a dead girlfriend on his hands."
As for the 29 charges filed on March 15th, these charges span at least two years, and have a lot to do with lewd photos and videos allegedly found on Harrington's phone.
According to that complaint, several more women accuse Harrington of taking video and pictures of them having sex with him -- without their consent.
The complaint indicates some of the women told investigators they would engage in sex for money, some to support their drug habits.
Police say the women appeared to be drugged in the photos and videos allegedly found on Harrington's phone.
The cases included in this March 15th criminal complaint extend back to November 2013.
In several of the cases, the victims told police they had "dated" Harrington multiple times. Some said they were "under the influence of drugs" during some of the incidents involving Harrington. One woman said she would not have consented to have sex for money or to be recorded during sex if she hadn't been high: "If I wasn't doing drugs, I wouldn't be doing any of this. I don't think no girls would."
The complaint indicates Harrington told investigators the women were willing, and that he paid them for sex. But several of the women told police a different story -- saying they were so drugged up, they couldn't consent and din't give permission for video and photos to be taken of them.
One of the woman told investigators: "I thought I knew Harrington, but clearly I didn't," when shown photos and videos Harrington had allegedly taken of her.
A warrant for Harrington's arrest was issued on March 15th, and a source told FOX6 News Harrington was arrested that afternoon.
Harrington has preliminary hearings scheduled in the cases filed in March coming up on March 25th.
As for the January case, he'll be in court on April 7th for a status conference.
