A lawyer that was arrested this week on drug charges has been forcing clients to perform sexual acts on him in exchange for legal service, according to the Nueces County District Attorney.

At a press conference, the district attorney’s office asked victims to come forward if they have any information about John Perry.

The DA’s office said several female victims, ranging in age from 20s-40s, have made allegations against Perry and it was their claims that led investigators to find drugs at his home.

Perry was arrested Thursday after a year-long investigation by Corpus Christi Police and the Nueces County District Attorney’s Office.

Perry was charged with the second-degree felony Possession of a Controlled Substance, and could serve between two and 20 years in prison.

If you were a victim of John Perry, the DA asks that you call 361-888-0411 or send an e-mail to da.media@nuecesco.com
