Missouri Prison Guard Wins $200K in Sexual Harassment Suit
Jurors have awarded $200,000 in damages to a former Missouri prison guard who alleged that she was sexually harassed by fellow guards.
The Kansas City Star reports that jurors also found last week in favor of Ana Barrios on her claims of gender discrimination and retaliation. But the jurors denied her claims of race and disability discrimination, as well as her request for punitive damages.
A spokeswoman for the corrections department declined to comment on the verdict, saying it doesn’t comment on litigation.
