CULLMAN, Ala. (AP) - A worker responsible for court-ordered drug screenings now faces additional charges related to sexual encounters with female clients.

The Cullman Times reports (http://bit.ly/1x3ZCSG ) that 61-year-old Winfred Eugene Vance Jr. was charged Monday with first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree sodomy.

Cullman County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Max Bartlett said authorities are asking anyone who might have information on the case to come forward.

Vance was arrested Dec. 5 on two counts of first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of sexual misconduct.

The charges followed allegations that Vance coerced female clients into sexual encounters by threatening them with imprisonment and failure on drug screenings.

It wasn’t known Wednesday whether Vance has an attorney.
