County responds to story on sexual harassment lawsuit

Last week I wrote about San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office employee Janna Huber filing a lawsuit against San Joaquin County, alleging a captain sexually harassed her and retaliated against her and that the agency did not protect her.

The Sheriff’s Office responded to the story with this statement from County Counsel:

“While the County is prevented from discussing the facts by personnel privacy, the County believes the evidence will show that there is no basis for Ms. Huber’s allegations.   As soon as Ms. Huber made an internal complaint, the County reacted by hiring an outside investigator to complete a thorough investigation and changed the supervisorial responsibility for Ms. Huber.  The County denies Ms. Huber’s claims and will defend the case vigorously”.
