New York Clerk Says Broker Stood On Her Breasts – Wants $20m

JESSICA Franqui alleges that Marcus Bolton, 45, the head of Tullett Prebon Americas Corp, a leading New York brokers, stood on her chest.

Miss Franqui, who was working as an administrative clerk in the foreign exchange team, claims she was left feeling “violated” and “humiliated” by an “intoxicated” Mr Bolton.

Barry Weiss, Miss Franqui’s lawyer, says his client is undergoing psychological counselling. Says he:
