PALM HARBOR, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Her name is Sue Eberle.
She's the Lakeland Police Department civilian employee at the center of LPD's sex scandal that also involves more than a dozen officers and city employees.
Eberle's attorney, David Linesch of Palm Harbor, says his client is a victim of sexual harassment and even sexual battery.
"Our investigation reveals an exceptional, if not historic case of sexual harrassment, coersion and assault resulting in a work environment that was sexually toxic," said Linesch.
He says the latest state attorney's investigation highlights institutional problems within the agency and city government and need to be investigated by other state and federal agencies.
Linesch says his client is the victim in this case, not the instigator of inappropriate behavior.
Eberle appeared at the news conference with her husband. Neither spoke to reporters.
