Ex-Michigan Prison Officer Sues After Supervisor Refused to Leave Her Alone

A former Michigan Department of Corrections prison officer is suing the department, alleging that a supervisor wouldn’t leave her alone after she ended a brief romantic relationship and claiming sexual harassment, Paul Egan reports for the Detroit Free Press. Kristy Klenke’s allegations include sex discrimination and retaliation, and claim that officials messed with her work schedule and gave her undesirable or unsafe work assignments, such as requiring her to work near prisoners who knew personal information about her, or requiring her to work without a partner to back her up. She also claims that the supervisor in question, Sgt. Mario Cunningham, talked to others about their prior relationship so much that it was common knowledge not only among staff at the Michigan Reformatory in Ionia, but even the prisoners. Cunningham has denied harassing Klenke.
