LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Two more officers have resigned amid the growing sex scandal involving nearly a dozen Lakeland police officers.
Sue Eberle has told officials she had consensual and sometimes coerced sex with the officers and a firefighter, and that she once was propositioned by a city worker. Eberle's accounts were largely corroborated by her sexual partners and published in a graphic report by the county's top prosecutor.
The Ledger reports Lt. Al Wilson and Officer George Vidal resigned Tuesday. Police Chief Lisa Womack said the two were scheduled to have pre-disciplinary hearings and would have been fired if they had not resigned.
According to a report by the state attorney's office, Wilson was accused of talking sexually and inappropriately touching Eberle. Vidal was accused of sexually harassing Eberle and having sex with her in a storage closet at the department.
