(Oxford, North Carolina)What in da entire hell is going on in Oxford, North Carolina?

Word on the Curb is that Oxford Housing Authority Executive is allegedly abusing his power and extorting sexual relations in exchange for lease agreements.

(I became aware of this alleged story two days ago, and wasn’t going to write on it until I spoke with the man accused. I did speak with Xavier Wortham, the man being accused of these horrendous allegations. I’ll get to what he said in a minute)

Tenants say they are fed up with the living conditions at properties operated by the Oxford Housing Authority as well as the abuse of Xavier Wortham, who has allegedly long abused his position to extort sexual relations with tenants in exchange for lease agreements.

Now, we did a little digging into these allegations, and didn’t merely find anyone publicly speaking on the fact that this man offered any kind of sexual relations in exchange for a lease agreement. Rather, we found posts speaking more of his mistreatment, and unfairness to tenants. Hopefully, anyone that have been contacted on a sexual basis by Mr. Wortham will immediately report it to the police.

A Facebook page has been created to fight against Mr. Wortham and have him held responsible for his alleged actions.

I personally spoke with Mr. Wortham Monday morning and he told me:

“All we are doing is trying to provide the best and safe quality housing. I don’t know anyone who’s ever been asked to move from their apartment that’s happy about it.”

Mr. Wortham said he had been aware of the allegations posted online by way of phone calls, and emails.

After further investigation into this, I found that the woman who is pushing for the firing of Mr. Wortham has actually started a petition so that she can take his position….odd huh? Her name is Sherry Shavon.

  1. I personally know that Xavier Wortham abuses his authority at will with his position and was their in apartment 223 on hillside dr Oxford nc when one night he sent the police to a tenants front door who was officer JJ Murphy who ordered the tenants to open the backdoor where Xavier was standing to let him inside and see who was inside the apartment I know for a fact the rent was paid on time and the tenants where in no violation of their lease and know where in that lease does it make it legal for Xavier to do anything like that at almost 2 o’clock in the morning waking kids that have to attend school in a few hours.. Something has to be done about this no one will speak up because of his connections in the community but something has to be done it’s been going on for dam near a decade now

    1. Do the crime, do the time. His position set him right up to be where he cant turn anybody down for an apartment. Turned me down bc i couldnt call and get police info on a exlandlord. The man was locked up wat else cud i do?? Oh i for got..OFFER HIM SOME SEX!!

  2. I KNOW XAVIER PERSONALLY; ALMOST LIKE FAMILY! IF HE HAS BEEN DOING THIS WITH THE FEMALE APPLICANTS….THAT IS SOMETHING THAT HE NEEDS TO GIVE IN ACCOUNT FOR. RIGHT IS RIGHT AND WRONG IS WRONG! BUT “BROUGHTON TERRANCE” ON HILLSIDE AND EASTWAY DRIVE ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT THEY USE TO BE!! I REMEMBER WHEN WE HAD WOODEN FRONT AND BACK DOORS. THE SINKS, CABINETS, COUNTERTOPS, BATHTUBS, AND SHOWER HEADS HAVE ALL BEEN UPDATED!

    WHAT OTHERS SHOULD REALIZE IS THAT, YOU SHOULDNT GIVE A SNEAKY VIBE AND THEN YOU BECOME UPSET WHEN YOU GET CAUGHT IN THE ACT! ITS THAT SIMPLE AND NO MORE TO SAY TO THAT!

    XAVIER TAKES PRIDE IN PROVIDING SAFETY FOR HIS TENANTS; NO MATTER OF WHAT THE OTHER ALLEGATIONS ARE ON HIM! A WOMAN CAN NOT TAKE CONTROL OR SEE OVER SO MUCH LIKE THE WAY HE DOES! THE CRIME RATE WOULD SKY ROCKET IF HE LEAVES THAT OFFICE!! AND ILL STAND BEHIND HIM EVERY WAY THAT I CAN TO KEEP HIM THERE; ALONG WITH OTHER POWERFUL PEOPLE IN GRANVILLE COUNTY! FOR MY SAFETY MY NAME IS BEING WITH HELD!

  3. I know Xavier and am aware of the work he has done at OHA. I know people who live there (formerly and presently). He has a “don’t give them an inch because they’ll take a mile” leadership style. Because of this drugs and crime in these public housing units have dropped a lot over the years. Also the quality of the units has increased. The sexual abuse allegations seem out of character for him, but you never can tell. I hope they are false allegations.
    I know some people who have expressed resentment towards him because he encourages the kids, especially black boys, to do better when their actions are not the best. I don’t know why they resent him for that.
    I feel that people who live there would like the freedom to do their thing without feeling like eyes are watching them. But whoever is heading this office has to ultimately be responsible to the public, not the tenants. I don’t think all the tenants understand that concept.
