Washington - Former Washington Mayor Marion Barry denied an allegation published in The Washington Post that a woman performed oral sex on him in a prison visiting room in front of dozens of inmates and their families.
Barry, serving a six-month sentence in Petersburg, Va., federal prison on a misdemeanor conviction of cocaine possession, told local TV station WRC last night that the incident "did not happen."
He said the man who told The Post of the alleged incident, Floyd Robertson, made the charge in order to try to get in the good grace of prison authorities.
