The former Tennessee police officer -who was forced off the department in disgrace after it was discovered she slept with over 60% of the sworn force- is now suing the city that employed her, claiming she is a victim who was groomed.
Maegan Hall, who became the subject of inescapable “police girl” memes following a major sex scandal, claims she was groomed by leadership at the La Vergne Police Department from as early as her recruit days.
Hall claims that several of her supervisors coerced her and utilized her sexually without her consent.
The disgraced officer also claims that the former chief of the police department, Chip Davis, was condoning such grooming.
“No woman should ever have to endure this type of abuse. What happened to me at LaVergne Police Department should never happen to anyone,” she said.
According to News Channel 5, Hall claims she felt she had no choice.
“I know what most people are saying. ‘You could have said no.’ I get it. But my response to them is that I did say no, and he wouldn’t take no for an answer. Eventually, I gave in from the pressure,” said Hall.
Hall’s attorney is currently on the offensive.
“Maegan wasn’t looked at as a rookie cop to be trained and promoted. She was looked at like a piece of meat to be sexualized and exploited,” said Hall’s attorney, Wesley Clark of Brazil Clark PLLC. “On several occasions, Hall tried to get out of this relationship, and she was not allowed to.”
Hall stated that she felt there was no way out for her at the time.
“My supervisors worked together to take advantage of my vulnerabilities and mental health, and they used it for their gain and their sexual pleasure,” Hall said. “Who do you turn to when the chief of police is sexually harassing you? How can I get justice when the entire system, including the chief, not only condoned such behavior but participated in it? I was lost, and I felt alone. I had no one to turn to and nowhere to go.”
The city has not yet responded to the lawsuit.
