A former Evanston police officer has filed suit claiming a sergeant on the force sexually harassed her.
The Sun-Times reports the plaintiff, Claudia Young, says in the Cook County Circuit Court suit that she had at one time had a consensual relationship with the male officer.
But several years later, she says, the officer started sending her inappropriate messages trying to resume their relationship and that the harassment continued after he was promoted to sergeant in 2008.
Young says the harassment caused illnesses that led her to quit the force late in 2009.
According to the suit, the male officer was demoted from sergeant to police officer last year as the result of an internal department investigation.
