A Lowell Juvenile Court officer has been suspended after being accused of sexually propositioning a married female juror while on duty. A spokeswoman for the Middlesex district attorney said 35-year-old Matthew Laurino of Lynn propositioned the woman while alone with her in a locked courthouse room Dec. 8. Laurino was released on personal recognizance after pleading not guilty Wednesday to a charge of annoying or accosting a person of the opposite sex. The Sun of Lowell reported that the woman said Laurino asked her out while she was eating lunch alone. She said that after she refused, he asked if she wanted to see his genitals. He also allegedly showed her a picture of his genitals on his cellphone. (AP)
