Trial to begin in lawsuit filed vs. ex-officer

Posted: October 10, 2013 - 11:07pm

ANCHORAGE — A trial is scheduled to begin Thursday in a lawsuit filed against a former probation officer.

KTUU-TV (http://bit.ly/1bfMH2E) reports at least 11 women claim they were sexually harassed or abused by James Stanton. They say state officials failed to protect the women and should have known of his misconduct.

Stanton in 2012 was convicted of attempted bribery and harassment

Attorney Colleen Libbey says her clients went to Wellness Court to improve their lives but instead were abused.

Wellness Court offers offenders reduced sentences if they enter a sobriety program.

Libbey says Stanton was not sufficiently supervised and that he abused women inside a downtown Anchorage courthouse and elsewhere.

Libbey says the state has filed a motion to keep Stanton’s employment records confidential.

KTUU-TV reports the state decline to comment.
