Civil Rights Lawsuit Claims City Was Negligent

Lubbock Sheriff's Office Lubbock Sheriff's Office

New information in a civil rights lawsuit against a former Lubbock police officer and the city. A 20-year-old woman claims her rights were violated when she performed a sexual act at Officer Blake Littlejohn's request during a traffic stop in June 2003.

In addition to allegations against Littlejohn, the lawsuit claims the city was negligent. Those claims include policies where a police officer can use discretion in taping or not taping audio and video portions of a traffic stop, not reporting the reason for a stop after an undetermined length, failing to supervise patrol officers in the Depot District and failing to fire Littlejohn.

You'll recall, Littlejohn resigned shortly after the allegations. He faces up to two years in jail if convicted on a civil rights charge.
