A bill to outlaw sexual harassment in Annapolis has won the support of two City Council subcommittees, paving the way for its expected approval Monday night.
The three women on the council -- Ruth Gray, R-Ward 4, Theresa DeGraff, R-Ward 7, and Ellen O. Moyer, D-Ward 8 -- have agreed to co-sponsor the legislation introduced by Alderman CarlO. Snowden, D-Ward 5. Alderman Samuel Gilmer, D-Ward 3, also added his name to the bill yesterday.
The bill would make sexual harassment a misdemeanor in the state capital and allow District Court judges to fine people convicted of harassment or jail them for up to six months.
