(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.
Are you from Oxford, North Carolina? Do you know about Mr. Wortham’s mistreatment?
