A Tempe bar owner is accused of plying a young woman with drinks during a job interview and then groping her.
Jay Kennedy Johari had his initial court appearance Tuesday on suspicion of sexual abuse and unlawfully taking photos without authorization.
The 35-year-old Johari was arrested in the case July 2 and released from jail with electronic monitoring the following day. He doesn't have a lawyer yet.
The then 20-year-old woman says she was interviewing for a waitress job at the Vintage Lounge and Grill in October 2012.
After being given numerous drinks over a two-hour span, the woman says she fell asleep inside the bar's office.
She says she awoke to find Johari kissing her and touching her inappropriately.
Police say a surveillance camera also recorded the woman undressing.
