Army Officials Charged With Punishing Sexual Harassment Complainant

Army civilian lawyer Kelly Theriot alleges that top Army officers joined forces to protect the man she accused of sexual harassment and to retaliate against her for making the complaint.

Theriot has filed a lawsuit and testified to a federal jury that several top officials lessened her duties and powers, staff and other resources, and ignored her after she complained about sexual harassment. “They wanted to set me up and discipline me. They wanted to discredit me,” said Theriot.

Col. Darrel Porr is accused of making unwanted sexual advances, comments, gestures. He and other officers will testify soon.
