Woman at Center of Police Sex Scandal Fired

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- A Lakeland Police Department crime analyst at the center of a widespread sexual misconduct case has been fired.
Sue Eberle was fired Wednesday in the agency's latest round of discipline.
The Ledger of Lakeland reports that Police Chief Lisa Womack detailed the punishment, and the weeks of investigation that preceded it, in a meeting with the Lakeland Police Advisory Commission. The commission is made up of volunteers tasked with reviewing a multitude of problems at the agency and recommending reforms.
Eberle's lawyer, David Linesch of Palm Harbor said after the meeting that he's disappointed the city chose to "re-victimize" Eberle by firing her.
Eberle told investigators she was coerced into some sex acts.
The disciplinary action brings an end to a sprawling investigation into the misconduct.
