WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A former Falls County employee has filed a complaint with the Texas Workforce Commission against the current sheriff.

The claimant said she became a full-time jailer and dispatcher in November of 2017. She claims Falls County sheriff Ricky Scaman called her into his office where he sexually assaulted her 20 times.

The former employee said he inappropriately touched her and had unauthorized and unwanted sex with her 10 times.

She claims when she tried to resist his advances, the sheriff reminded her he had a position of authority and he wouldn’t suffer any consequences.

The complaint filed in the civil rights division of the TWC states when the woman informed Scaman she would no longer tolerate the behavior, she was constructively discharged in March. 

“I loved my job. I enjoyed serving Falls County, Texas and its citizens. Those citizens all deserve a Sheriff’s Department that is appropriate and free of harassment, sexual assault, sexual innuendo, ridicule, degradation, and insult,” the former jailer stated in the complaint.

 "They just want money," claims Scaman's attorney, Robert Davis. 

Davis also stated that the former employee was not discharged, but instead walked off the job. 

Central Texas News Now reached out to the victim's attorney but have not heard back. 

The Director of Communications for the Texas Workforce Commission said in a statement it can't confirm or deny the existence of civil rights complaints or provide information on the status of investigations through the Civil Rights Division because it's confidential.
