Ark. Mayor Accused in Sex-For-Water Case

Waldron’s mayor was released on a signature bond Wednesday after being accused of giving women special treatment on their water bills in exchange for sex.

Troy Anderson, 72, is accused of abusing the public trust and patronizing a prostitute. Prosecutors said Anderson, for several years, paid women and offered favors – such as taking care of a woman’s delinquent water bill – in exchange for sex.

In January, the woman asked Anderson for help in getting her granddaughter out of state Department of Health and Human Services custody. The mayor told the woman he might be able to help, and that she should meet him at an apartment, the affidavit said.
