Another scientologist arrested for sex abuse:
April 6, 2006 -- A 19-year-old aspiring actress has accused a veteran
Broadway actor of luring her into performing sex acts offstage when she
was just a star-struck kid visiting the Great White Way.
The 40-year-old actor, James Barbour, who appeared in the Broadway
musical "Assassins" three years ago, was arrested yesterday by Los
Angeles police on a New York warrant charging sex abuse and sodomy,
sources here said.
The unidentified woman came forward in February and told NYPD cops she
first met Barbour through her high-school drama coach in 2001 when she
She met the handsome hoofer again that year on a trip with her parents.
Barbour, who was appearing in the Tony-Award winning "Jane Eyre" at the
Brooks Atkinson Theatre, promised the star-struck out-of-towner a
personal backstage tour.
Instead, she claims, Barbour took her to his dressing room where they
had a sexual encounter.
A few weeks later, on July 21, the awe-struck teenager returned, this
time without her parents, and met Barbour again.
Later, the woman said she went to his Upper West Side apartment where
they had a sexual encounter. It was not clear why the woman, now an
aspiring actress, waited so long to come forward.
An L.A. judge ordered Barbour to surrender in New York on April 17.
