    WILDER — A landlord is facing criminal charges for allegedly receiving sexual favors from a tenant in place of rent, police said.

    The Valley News reported that Lowery allegedly entered the tenant’s apartment, damaged items and threw them onto the lawn.

    Lowery is charged with prohibited acts, a misdemeanor. He is also charged with burglary and unlawful mischief.
