LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - A Lakeland Police Department crime analyst at the center of a widespread sexual misconduct case has been fired.
Sue Eberle was fired Wednesday in the agency's latest round of discipline.
The Ledger of Lakeland (http://bit.ly/17SpMdV) reports that Police Chief Lisa Womack detailed the punishment, and the weeks of investigation that preceded it, in a meeting with the Lakeland Police Advisory Commission. The commission is made up of volunteers tasked with reviewing a multitude of problems at the agency and recommending reforms.
Eberle's lawyer, David Linesch of Palm Harbor said after the meeting that he's disappointed the city chose to "re-victimize" Eberle by firing her.
Eberle told investigators she was coerced into some sex acts.
The disciplinary action brings an end to a sprawling investigation into the misconduct.
