City Employee Responds to Sexual Harassment Allegations

A city employee, accused of sexually harassing a female co-worker, has presented his side of the story to the city.

The employee delivered the letter explaining his actions Monday afternoon before the 5 p.m. deadline. NewsChannel 11 has requested a copy of the employee's letter to the city under the Texas Open Records Act.

Last month, we told you the employee in question was placed on paid administrative leave. He is accused of sexually harassing a female co-worker at least 20 times, and also allegedly had sex in city buildings.

On October 17 the employee received a letter from the city stating his employment status had come into question. The employee was then asked to provide good reason why he should not be terminated.

The employee then asked for more information so that he could properly defend himself.

In a letter written to the city last week, the man says, "I am completely innocent of this accusation. You cannot prove that I did anything wrong because it is an utter lie."

A Lubbock Police Sergeant tells NewsChannel 11 the case was presented to the DA's office on September 19 but no charges have been pressed at this time. It's for that reason NewsChannel 11 has decided to not release the man's name.

NewsChannel 11 will continue to update you with the latest information.
