A former female Telford Borough (Pa.) Police officer is suing the borough, the police department, the chief and two officers, claiming she was sexually harassed, intimidated, and wrongfully fired.

Connie McGinniss, 27, of Quakertown, "was subjected to attitudes of hatred, dislike, mistrust, and mistreatment of women based on her status as the only female officer in the department," according to her suit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court.

"She was subjected to stalking, peeping, and explicit sexual language and pornographic displays belittling women" and McGinniss, according to the 30-page suit.

After five years on the force, she was fired in July 2010 in retaliation for her complaints to her supervisors, according to the suit.
