Deana Perry Received $100,000 To Settle Her Sexual Harassment Lawsuit
Deana Perry is receiving $100,000 to settle her sexual harassment lawsuit with the Middletown police. According to published accounts, Perry had her house raided in a drug raid and a small amount of marijuana was found. However, the police placed a nude photo of her discovered during a search of her bedroom in a windowsill next to a sticker that read, "Say 'NO' to Drugs ... BUSTED ... Middletown Police Department".
Additionally Perry alleged officers forced her to sit on a barstool in her living room in only a T-shirt and panties in front of her four children and three others she was babysitting. This is an unusual sexual harassment case to say the least. Most sexual harassment cases involve employment and this is more of a civil rights lawsuit. The behavior of the police department is outrageous in this case.
"She feels just like we do – that the settlement is a step in the right direction and that it sends a signal to not just the Middletown Police Department but police departments everywhere that this kind of behavior is unacceptable," said attorney Joshua Autry.
