The corporate clown car that is LivingSocial faced another meltdown yesterday. According to the Washington Post, the daily deal site's Chief Marketing Officer was convicted of assaulting a woman in a D.C. Four Seasons bar. The 52-year-old executive, Barry Judge, faces up to 180 days in jail.
Prosecutors said Judge reached over and grabbed a woman under her skirt as the woman walked past him on the evening of June 22, 2013, at the Bourbon Steak lounge within the hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue in Northwest. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss the sex-abuse charge against him. [...]
The 39-year-old woman, who was in the courtroom, emerged from the audience and told Senior Judge Susan Winfield she was "completely humiliated and degraded" by Judge.
A Washington Post profile of Judge published in May indicates he was still at the company earlier this year. However, that no longer seems to be the case: the 404 error page at the location of Judge's former LivingSocial corporate bio reads "Don't panic, we'll get through this together. Let's explore our options here."
