SWISHER COUNTY -- A federal lawsuit has been filed against a former Swisher County Sheriff, the current County Judge, and the County.
In the suit, one former and one current employee claim that they were both sexually harassed by former Sheriff Emmett Benavidez.
They also say when the conduct was reported, County Judge Harold Keeter attempted to cover up the reports and allowed Benavidez to resign instead of being fired.
Part of the complaint says that the former Sheriff fondled himself infront of the plaintiffs.
Both alleged victims are seeking monetary damages.
