Corey Lewandowski, ex-Trump adviser charged with unwelcome sexual advances, takes plea deal

LAS VEGAS – An ex-advisor to former President Donald Trump has signed a plea deal to resolve allegations that he made unwanted sexual advances to a GOP donor during an event in Las Vegas.

Corey Lewandowski entered into a plea deal earlier this month regarding a felony charge, according to Clark County online records.

While he does not admit to committing any wrongdoing, Lewandowski will undergo eight hours of impulse control counseling and 50 hours of community service.

Court documents from Monday say the charges will be dismissed if he meets these requirements and stays out of trouble for a year.

“A felony has been filed, but we are pleased to say that the matter has been resolved,” defense attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld said in a statement. “The court has set conditions that Mr. Lewandowski will meet and the case will eventually be dropped.”

The plea deal was first reported by Politico.

Trump donor Trashelle Odom publicly claimed that Lewandowski repeatedly touched her without her consent, made lewd comments, and stalked her at a fundraising event in September 2021. Odom is the wife of Idaho-based builder John Odom.

The allegations led to several Republican figures breaking ties with him.
