MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - A former Mount Pleasant town councilman is being sued for assault and battery after being charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct two years ago.

An 18-year old told police that Ken Glasson, who was 53 at the time, performed oral sex on her without her consent.

According to the lawsuit, the alleged victim was staying at a house on Seabrook Island with friends who had rented a house for Prom on the weekend of March 30 and April 1, 2017.

Court documents state that Glasson was one of the parental chaperones that weekend.

The lawsuit says the woman had been drinking to the point where she considered herself to be “blackout drunk." It also claims that on the night of March 31, Glasson took advantage of the alleged victim.

She is also suing for intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Glasson was released on bond. The criminal case is still pending but hasn’t been updated since December of 2017.
