Deputy Made Porn from Arrest, Woman Says

     SEATTLE (CN) – After arresting her, a Pierce County Sheriff’s Deputy took a photo of a woman’s genitals and “uploaded the pornographic image onto a law enforcement database for nothing more than the amusement of his colleagues,” the woman claims in King County Court.




     The woman, identified in the complaint as D.C., says Deputy Eugene Allen arrested and handcuffed her on suspicion of drunken driving. He left her alone in the squad car and she “tried to get her handcuffs from behind her back to the front,” according to the complaint.
     “During this process, plaintiff D.C. inadvertently exposed her genitals when the handcuffs reached around her pants.” Officer Allen “took advantage of plaintiff D.C.’s compromising position by photographing plaintiff D.C.’s genitals,” the complaint states.
     “Defendant Allen then uploaded the pornographic photo to ‘Gondor,’ a law enforcement database, exposing plaintiff’s genitals to all law enforcement agencies with access to the computer database. At roughly the same time, Deputy Allen filed a report of the arrest, which accomplished little other than amusing himself and his colleagues.”
     D.C. sued Allen and Pierce County, seeking punitive damages for outrage and invasion of privacy. She is represented by Darryl Cochran with Pfau, Cochran, Vertetis & Kosnoff of Tacoma.
