Woman Says Horny Cop Fondled Her

     HOUSTON (CN) – A deputy county constable who had been fired for misconduct, then rehired, stopped a woman driver and told her “that his penis was erect and that she needed to ‘adjust it’ or she would go to jail,” then sexually groped her while she was handcuffed, the woman claims in Federal Court.
     M.M. sued Harris County, Harris County Constable Precinct 3 and Precinct 3 Constable Kenneth Jones – but Jones is not the officer she accused of assaulting her. She says she was assaulted by Deputy Constable Christopher Kerr, who is not named as a defendant in the case.
     The complaint states: “On August 19, 2011, plaintiff, a 28-year-old female, was pulled over by Deputy Constable Christopher Kerr on Beltway 8 near John Ralston Road. Deputy Kerr handcuffed plaintiff and then proceeded to grope and fondle her.
     “Deputy Kerr then told plaintiff that his penis was erect and that she needed to ‘adjust it’ or she would go to jail. Deputy Kerr then placed his hands under plaintiff’s skirt and fondled her.
     “At all times plaintiff was in Deputy Kerr’s custody and restrained by handcuffs. The traffic stop lasted about 30 minutes, but there is not any video record of it, because video of the incident was erased from the camera in Kerr’s patrol car.
     “Defendant Constable Kenneth Jones, in the course and scope of his employment as Harris County Constable, Pct. 3, had previously fired Kerr for misconduct. Nevertheless, defendant Harris County rehired Kerr in January 2011. Defendant Harris County Texas was aware of the propensities of Kerr to disregard the department’s policies and procedures, but rehired and retained him in spite of such knowledge.”
     M.M. says she “still has nightmares involving the attack upon her, and has a justified fear of police officers and others in positions of power.”
     She seeks $150,000 in damages for civil rights deprivation, supervisor liability, assault by offensive physical contact, assault by threat of bodily injury, mental anguish and negligent hiring.
     She is represented by David A. Bryant Jr. with Bryant-Gonzalez, of Houston.
