Skip Waters, a veteran TV meteorologist, has been sued for an inappropriate relationship. Skip Waters and his TV station boss of WCTI-TV were named in the lawsuit filed by John Lero. John Lero claimed Skip Waters invited him to his home in 2004 when he was 16.
Lero claimed Waters rented porn tapes, bought alcohol and marijuana for them to consume before having sex. Lero said Waters gave him a spare key to his home and they had unprotected sex.
John Lero’s lawsuit said that in 2006, Waters told Craven County Law Enforcement that Lero had kidnapped and raped him. Lero was arrested and jailed. Two weeks later, the charges were dropped.
In 2008, WCTI-TV was allegedly given notice of Skip Waters’ alleged sexual conduct and drug use. Lero claimed WCTI-TV employed Skip Waters as a community liaison and did nothing to stop the intimate relationship after witnessing it.
WCTI-TV said the lawsuit was a private one. In North Carolina, the age of consent for sex is 16.
