In Letter To The City, Employee Accused of Sexual Harassment Maintains Innocence

A City of Lubbock employee says he didn't do it and that the city can't prove he did anything wrong.

The employee is accused of sexually harassing a co-worker and says, "He should not be terminated because he did not do anything illegal." That quote was in a letter delivered to the city Tuesday.

The employee begins the letter by stating he wants copies of all statements, reports, photos, medical reports and affidavits related to this issue. He says he's requested them twice and still doesn't have them.

The man goes on to say, "It's obvious that you will not provide the requested items because you do not want me to defend myself from these lies and because you intend to wrongfully and illegally terminate me from my employment."

Later in the letter he states, "I have reason to believe that you are responsible for disseminating these lies to the local news media in an effort to put pressure on me and to slander my name."

Last month, NewsChannel 11 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.

In his letter to the city the employee says he voluntarily gave the Lubbock Police Department a DNA sample and is willing to take a polygraph test.

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

The city will now evaluate the employee's latest response and then make a decision based on his explanation that decision could include termination.
