James Marzilli, the former state senator from Arlington who pleaded guilty last year to lewdly harassing four women on the streets of Lowell in 2008, is facing new accusations, but he will not be charged, according to a Fox 25 News report this evening.
Roughly three weeks ago, on Friday, Oct. 26, Marzilli allegedly stood in the doorway of his Watertown home, wearing only a dress shirt, and watched a female neighbor do yard work, according to the report. After about 10 minutes, the woman called police when Marzilli touched his bare thigh, Fox reports.
Marzilli told police that he was wearing shorts at the time of the incident, but the neighbor disputed this claim, according to the report.
Watertown police told Fox that Marzilli will not be charged but that the state’s Probation Department has been notified.
Marzilli from the state Retirement Board.
In his career, Marzilli was also a member of the state House of Representatives and Arlington government.
