LOS ANGELES (AP) – A lawyer has said Spanish-language radio host Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo was accused of sexual harassment before Univision abruptly ended his morning show.
The Los Angeles Times reported (http://lat.ms/11r5xBr ) late Monday that attorney Robert R. Clayton, who represents writer, performer and producer Alberto “Beto” Cortez, alleges that Sotelo made aggressive and unwanted sexual advances at work toward his client.
Sotelo’s attorney Jeffrey Spitz says the allegations are false and motivated by money.
An April 16 letter from Clayton to Univision executives also accuses Sotelo of ordering his staffers to falsify letters in a high-profile campaign supporting immigration reform.
Clayton’s law firm declined to comment on the letter.
Univision ended Sotelo’s show last week and started playing music in the time slot. No reason was given for the decision.
