In 2009, a young recent college grad arrived at Fox 2 News to work with Rob Wolchek and the Problem Solvers team. She was young intern with big aspirations.She thought, she landed her dream job as production assistant. She formed close bonds with her new colleagues and Rob Wolchek, especially. While others at the station kept a professional distance but not Rob Wolchek.
One day in July 2010, he invited her to lunch, which she thought would be a chance to ask him for career advice. Instead, Rob Wolchek, who was in his 50s and married, started to aggressively hit on the 24-year-old employee. She felt dumbstruck and numb. Intimidated by his stature, she gave in to his flattery, and she entered into a month-long relationship with Rob Wolchek, who would arrange to secretly to meet her.
