Investigate the Iredell County Sheriff's Office Domestic Violence Unit
Domestic violence victims have become sexual harassment victims as a result of seeking help from the Domestic Violence Unit at the Iredell County Sheriff's Office. Suzanne Wick and Lisa Mangiardi gained enough courage to get help from their respective abusive households by seeking protection from the Domestic Violence Unit. Unfortunately, these women were subject to sexual harassment by Deputy Sheriff, Ben Jenkins, at their most vulnerable state. Throughout the course of litigation it has become apparent that there could be more domestic violence victims that have been subject to the same type of sexual abuse that Suzanne and Lisa experienced. With this in mind, we are petitioning for the Iredell County Board of Commissioners to conduct an investigation of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Domestic Violence Unit to uncover these potential victims so that they may be brought to justice.
