Victim Upset Over Ruling in Civil Case Against Former Lubbock Police Officer

Posted:

The woman suing a former Lubbock police officer is claiming injustice.

"They gave Officer Blake Littlejohn a misdemeanor," said Rebecca Hernandez. "I was very upset, because if it was anyone else on the street they would have done something else about it. But since it's an officer he's getting privileges. And I think that's unfair. I feel ignored, upset, I just feel like the system is treating me unfairly."

Hernandez filed a civil suit against Blake Littlejohn stemming from a 2004 traffic stop in the 1900 block of Avenue L. Hernandez says she performed a sexual act at the request of Littlejohn.

Littlejohn was put on probation and forced to surrender his peace officer license after pleading guilty to harassment.

Tuesday, State District Judge Sam Medina ruled District Attorney Matt Powell will not have to turn over files or notes from the criminal case against Littlejohn. Medina said the file, requested by Hernandez's attorney, is protected by a law enforcement privilege.
