ALTON, Ill. (AP) — An Alton attorney already accused of growing marijuana in the basement of a home he owns now faces charges that he offered to provide legal services to two women in exchange for sexual favors.

A Madison County grand jury on Thursday indicted 56-year-old Bradford Hunt on two misdemeanor counts of solicitation of a sexual act.

Hunt was charged in June with two felony counts of unlawful production of marijuana plants and a misdemeanor count of unlawful possession of marijuana.

Police say officers investigating a reported burglary at a house he owns found two dozen marijuana plants in the basement, along with equipment used to grow the drug.

Hunt's home telephone has been disconnected, and a message seeking comment was left Thursday at his law office.
