If I make a rude/crude comment to you and you do not tell me to stop, I have no way of knowing that such behavior is unwanted. therefore if I continue it is not harassment.Sexual harassment refers to persistent and unwanted sexual advances, typically in the workplace, where the consequences of refusing are potentially very disadvantageous to the victim.

I'm sure she never considered bilking an employer for cash to help pay off some of this. That never happens.
If he truly sexually harassed her, why settle for so little money? Sorry, I don't buy what some bat@#$% crazy woman says, who appears to live her life with no sense of personal or financial responsiblity. She sounds like someone on Judge Judy.
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination.The legal definition of sexual harassment is “unwelcome verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is severe or pervasive and affects working conditions or creates a hostile work environment.”

sexual harassment legal definition of sexual harassment. sexual harassment synonyms by the Free Online Law Dictionary.... Courts and employers generally use the definition of sexual harassment contained in the guidelines of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). This language has also formed the basis for most state laws prohibiting sexual harassment. The guidelines state:
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when
submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual's employment,
submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for employment decisions affecting such individuals, or
such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. (29 C.F.R. § 1604.11 ) ...
while a trend would likely be more damning, i do not see where a persistent pattern must be evident to find that sexual harassment was committed
