Haven't seen coverage of the sexual harassment lawsuit against Washington County sheriff's office leaders around here, though it's been mentioned by readers here. Ozarks Unbound has covered the story and done the public the further service of posting the lawsuit on-line.
Allegations there include wife swapping parties, fistfights, detailed discussions of deputies' breast augmentation, crude sexual tales in the office, a captain's alleged drawing of a "sex tree" that illustrated who a female deputy could have sex with in county government and who was off-limits, alleged spying on female prisoners being strip--searched and more. Plaintiffs say they suffered retaliation for complaining.
