It appears law enforcement in Jackson will be dragged through the mud yet again. The former Hinds County Chief Deputy sued Sheriff Victor Mason for sex discrimination, race discrimination, and sexual harassment yesterday in U.S. District Court. The complaint contains quite a few lurid allegations as former Chief Deputy Cheryl Matory accused Sheriff Mason of channeling his inner Bill Clinton by trying to use her to arrange sexual encounters with another employee. The complaint is posted below. Ms. Matory is represented by attorney Lisa Ross.
The complaint makes quite a few lurid allegations. Ms. Matory was a corporal at JPD before she became Chief Deputy. However, she served in that position for a short period of time before she was demoted. The case was assigned to U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola, Jr. The alleged facts of the case begin on the second page.
Attorney Claire Barker represents the Sheriff. She said "We have reviewed the Complaint and deny all allegations. We cannot offer any further comment due to the fact that this is now in litigation. The Sheriff and the Hinds County Sheriff's Office remains committed to the continued efforts to serve and protect the citizens of Hinds County."
