A lawyer was slapped with a lawsuit after allegedly offering a young woman a job in exchange for her having sex with him and his wife at the same time, according to court documents in New York.

Denisse Villalta of Brooklyn, who was 19 years old at the time of the incident, filed the lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan, claiming that 42-year-old Sunny Barkats of the JS Barkats PLLC law firm, forced her to have sex with him in exchange for having a job as a receptionist.

Barkats also insisted that Villalta have sex with him and his wife at the same time. On her first day of work, Barkats demanded sex.

He then choked her and warned that if he finds her sleeping with anyone else, he would kill her. Villalta was promised an apartment in Manhattan, gifts and promotions if she complies with his sexual demands.

On her second day of work, Barkats ordered her to take a blood test to screen for sexually transmitted diseases in order to keep her new job.

Villalta left the office and never returned. Barkats then began sending her threatening text messages, along with a photo of himself holding a knife.

Barkats vehemently denied the allegations, saying that Villalta was once the girlfriend of his brother-in-law, and she is just seeking revenge.
