Baltimore’s “sex-for-repairs” scandal is back in court Wednesday.

Trial is set to begin for 62-year-old former public housing worker Charles Coleman, who was accused in 2015 by several women living in Gilmor Homes of demanding sex in exchange for home repairs.

Another former public housing worker, Doug Hussy, was found not guilty earlier this month. Prosecutors said one of the victims expected to testify on the day of his trial never showed up.

Last year, the city Housing Authority vowed to improve housing and settled a multi-million dollar class action lawsuit with a group of 19 women.
