County Jailer requesting more time to respond to lawsuit

Former employee says Harris sexually harassed her on job

(Continued)

Somerset —

The lawsuit alleges that Harris had a romantic relationship with one former assistant, and had another employee transferred to the Pulaski Animal Shelter when she spurned his sexual advances.
Moses alleges in the lawsuit that Harris introduced her as his “woman” or his “wife” during state conferences they attended together.
“Unlike the expectations placed on Moses and other female PCDC employees, male employees did not have to suffer the indignity of being referred to as ‘baby,’ ‘honey,’ or otherwise being identified as the jailer’s ‘woman’ to other state and county officials, being required to pander to Harris’ ego, being expected to act as a piece of ‘arm candy’ at work functions with other state and county officials, being expected to have a child with Harris or otherwise being expected to be Harris’ paramour ...,” the lawsuit reads.
Moses accuses Harris of intimidating her by taking her to an isolated location to show her where he’d had sex with other women. Harris, who was allegedly armed during the encounter, told Moses he “wouldn’t molest her unless she wanted him to” and told Moses that if a former staffer ever told anyone about her sexual relationship with him he would have to “kill” her because a “divorce would cost him over a million dollars.”
Moses claims Harris said he sought her out for employment because his wife couldn’t have children, which he desperately desired.
The lawsuit also claims Harris offered Moses money for a manicure and pedicure prior to a jailer’s conference and also offered her money for clothes. The lawsuit claims Harris was visibly upset when Moses refused to take his money.
The lawsuit also alleges Harris “intentionally, maliciously and unlawfully touched Moses in a harmful and offensive manner on several occasions during her employment at PCDC.”
