Los Angeles County Deputy Files Sexual Harassment Lawsuit


A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy has filed a lawsuit that claims that a group of male deputies sexually harassed female trainees and demanded sexual favors as part of an initiation.

According to NBC News, the lawsuit, filed by Guadalupe Lopez, who was assigned to the East Los Angeles Sheriff’s station in Boyle Heights starting in 2011, accuses a group of male deputies who called themselves the “Banditos” of sexual harassment, hazing and retaliation.

Lopez was reportedly shown photos of female deputies performing sex acts on male employees.

It is unlawful for an employer to retaliate against employees for reporting harassment, including terminating a worker over sexual harassment claims.
