Texas Deputy Claims Wrongful Termination

May 22, 2012  | 

A former Wood County (Texas) Sheriff's deputy has sued the department, claiming she was fired after reporting misconduct, reports the Longview News-Journal.

Samantha Sellers's lawsuit names the county, Sheriff Bill Wansley, Chief Deputy Wes Criddle, and Lt. Jerry Blaylock.

Wansley hired Sellers as a deputy on Aug. 3, 2009. The clash with command staff members began when Sellers reported several incidents involving male deputies and supervisors committing acts of violence, alcoholism, and malfeasance while in uniform and using county property, both on and off duty.
