A deputy sheriff is suing the Nassau County Sheriff's Office over claims of sexual harassment.
Deputy Sheriff Alicia Boudouris filed a 38-page complaint in federal court Friday, accusing a lieutenant and a sergeant in her division with sexually harassing her.
Her attorney Rick Ostrove says there were references to female body parts and comments of a sexual nature in the workplace.
The federal complaint alleges that many of the vulgar comments directed at Boudouris were spoken in the offices of family court where she worked.
The 49-year-old mother's attorney tells us she complained to her supervisors, then to the county's Equal Employment Office five months ago, but with still no action taken, she says a federal suit is her last resort.
News 12 reached out to the county attorney who said in a statement, "We do not comment when there is an active EEO investigation. We take any allegations of this nature seriously and are fully investigating this matter."
Still on the job, Boudouris has since been transferred to a different division as she awaits the next step in the investigation. She has been working for the Nassau County Sheriff's Office since 2011.
