MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Continuing coverage of the sexual harassment lawsuit against the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Sam Cochran, we first showed you this lawsuit when the department of justice filed it last week. It accuses the jail of being a hostile work environment for female employees. Now, Sheriff Sam Cochran and a former jail employee are speaking out about the allegations in the lawsuit.
The woman agreed to speak to us so long as we keep her identity anonymous, but she tells us when inmates heard our interview with the warden, it’s made working inside these walls much more difficult.
The woman said, “I keep in touch with a lot of women that’s down there and they say it’s way worse than 2017.”
