(KMOV.com) – An Alton attorney already accused of growing marijuana in the basement of a home he owns now faces charges that he offered to provide legal services to two women in exchange for sexual favors.

A Madison County grand jury on Thursday indicted 56-year-old Bradford Hunt on two misdemeanor counts of solicitation of a sexual act.

Hunt was charged in June with two felony counts of unlawful production of marijuana plants and a misdemeanor count of unlawful possession of marijuana.

Police say officers investigating a reported burglary at a house he owns found two dozen marijuana plants in the basement, along with equipment used to grow the drug.

Hunt's home telephone has been disconnected, and a message seeking comment was left Thursday at his law office.

For the solicitation charges, which are misdemeanors, Hunt could face anything from fines and probation to one year in jail.

His bond was set at $10,000.
