Former State Senator James Marzilli pleaded guilty to six charges stemming from lewdly harassing women in Lowell in 2008.
Marzilli appeared in this morning, where he entered guilty pleas to three counts of disorderly conduct for accosting and annoying a member of the opposite sex in a lewd way, one count of disorderly conduct for disturbing the peace, and one count of resisting arrest.
Marzilli, the former state for Arlington, Billerica, Burlington, Lexington and Woburn, also served nearly nine terms in the House of Representatives representing Arlington and West Medford.
His attorney, Terrence Kennedy sought a sentence of three years probation and no jail time, while prosecutors are seeking one year in the house of corrections.
Marzilli agreed with facts given by prosecutors alleging he harassed at least four women on the streets of Lowell in June 2006.
Marzilli made remarks about women's bodies, asked one about her feminine hygiene, and asked another if she was wearing underwear, assistant district attorney Elizabeth Dunigan said.
The presiding judge heard sentencing arguments from both sides this morning and is expected to hand down a sentence later Tuesday morning.
Return to Arlington Patch later today for more details.
