The Latest: Patrol didn't follow up sex assault allegations

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — An investigation has found that Nebraska State Patrol leaders didn't properly investigate allegations of sexual harassment by a female recruit involving an outside doctor working on the patrol's behalf.

The investigation released Thursday comes just two days after a female trooper filed a federal lawsuit alleging she was subjected to invasive and medically unnecessary pelvic exams by a doctor as a condition of employment.

The investigation found that patrol leaders didn't properly document the woman's allegations and didn't follow up with her until more than two years after she had made them.

The patrol doesn't have any formal sexual harassment policies for third parties who perform work on its behalf, but the investigation report says leaders should have exercised more independent judgment and investigated the issue.
