A circuit judge ruled Tuesday in favor of a motion filed by several women who are suing the Horry County Police Department alleging sexual harassment by former Detective Allen Large, asking that the county be forced to turn over certain records.
The order by Judge Roger Henderson demands that the county produce copies of all citizen complaints pertaining to unwanted sexual advances or sexual assaults by police officials from 2006 to present. Additionally, the county must provide all internal affairs files on those complaints.
Henderson ordered that the complete and unredacted personnel and training files of former officers Todd Cox and Christopher Peterson be turned over as well. Both men are expected to be called as witnesses when the cases filed by four women identified only as Jane Doe go to trial.
Large was indicted by a grand jury last week on charges relating to these cases. Cox was also indicted on separate charges of misconduct in office.
