Peaceoholics's Moten Testifies for Counselor at Sex Assault Trial
Peaceoholics co-founder Ron Moten took the stand Tuesday to defend Barry Harrison, a Peaceoholics counselor accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old student.
He's also defending former board member Linda K. Harllee-Harper who now works at the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services.
Peaceoholics has been criticized for getting no-bid contracts, particularly through DYRS. Council member Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6), chairman of the Committee on Human Services, nixed one such agreement earlier this year.
Reggie Sanders, spokesman for DYRS, said he did not know whether Harllee-Harper is in a decision-making position when it comes to Peaceoholics' contracts.
But he and Moten and said there's no conflict of interest. They both said Harllee-Harper resigned when she took the job as a program manager in 2007. Sanders said she submitted the resignation letter as proof.
