DETROIT (WKZO) -- A former aide has accused state Representative Brian Banks, of Harper Woods, of sexual harassment.

Twenty-nine-year-old Tramaine Cotton claims Banks forced him to have sex and gave him a raise in an attempt to create a romantic relationship.  Cotton filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the lawmaker in Wayne County Circuit Court on Monday.

Cotton had reportedly been working for Banks since January, driving him to Lansing for work.  His lawyer says his client eventually quit his job to avoid Banks's unwanted "sexual comments and explicit solicitations."
