Investigation Uncovers Sex Scandal at Fla. Agency

July 02, 2013  | 

A nearly three-month investigation into sexual misconduct at the Lakeland (Fla.) Police Department found that at least 10 officers inappropriately had sex or were engaged in sexually suggestive behavior with a female civilian employee during the past seven years.

Investigators detailed allegations of forced sex, sexual harassment and consensual sex but said any criminal allegations couldn't be proven, according to the report and a letter by State Attorney Jerry Hill, which he hand-delivered to Chief Lisa Womack.

The report said seven of the officers accused admitted to sexual wrongdoing—from having sex to taking and sharing pictures of sex organs—during sworn statements with investigators from the State Attorney's Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

So, this one woman was taken advantage of by as many as 10 officers?
No wonder she was "openly referred to Sue Eberle as a ferile cat."
So who is the victim here, her or the officers who should have known better but we all know how guys are, if it's free, it's for me.
Apparently, she was the town pump and now, for whatever reason, she becomes the victim.

Seven years its been ongoing and now it's a problem??? Not taking sides but why did she not tell someone (like her husband) about the sexual aggression when it started??

Sorry this is just business as usual in Florida. Especially in the Pan Handle where corruption runs wild within Police agencies. Nobody cares.
