Pugh police report reveals sexually explicit texts

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - A police report says text messages from former Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh's cell phone show money and video games were offered to a teenager in exchange for a nude video of the 18-year-old.
    
A Madison Heights police investigator writes that "the suspect specifically requested that the victim be naked."
    
The texts started May 31. The teen was 17 when he met Pugh as part of a group of students Pugh was mentoring.
    
Prosecutors said last week there was not enough evidence to charge Pugh who quit the city council in September.
    
Attorney Steve Fishman said in an email Tuesday that he has not talked to former client Pugh "for some time."
    
The Associated Press has been unable to reach Pugh since the start of the police investigation.
