A sheriff in southern Indiana avoided having to go to jail for sexually harassing two police dispatchers. He was accuse d of touching their breasts without their consent.
Instead, Harrison County Sherrif Mike D. plead guilty to obstruction of justice and instead is under home arrest for a year and a half and then has to spend another 6 months on probation. According to his attorney, "Mike feels very, very badly about what this has done to the community".
In his plea agreement he admitted to fondling the women and then threatened them and destroyed evidence after they submitted a complaint to the police department.
Harris County government ended up having to pay almost half a million dollars in a settlement with the dispatchers. Would it have been easier if everyone in the department just had to take Indiana sexual harassment training?
