California Briefing / El Monte

Officer sues over sexual harassment

October 17, 2009|Andrew Blankstein

A veteran El Monte police officer claims in a lawsuit that she was sexually harassed for years by colleagues, including a supervisor who repeatedly commented on her body and told her women should not be cops but made "natural waitresses and food servers."

Mechelle Marin alleges in an 18-page complaint that supervisors in the El Monte Police Department looked the other way when she was harassed and intimidated, and took no disciplinary action against those who allegedly did it.

A department spokesman could not be reached for comment Friday.
