Woman is suing the County, said she was assaulted by a Deputy


A woman that prosecutors say was sexually assaulted by a Kern County Sheriff's Deputy is suing the county for letting it happen.          

The attorney for one of the alleged victims says Deputy Gabriel Lopez inappropriately groped his client during a body search inside her house last march.

After reports of that incident came out a second victim came forward.

Lopez is no longer on active duty and the first victim is now seeking damages in excess of 10 thousand dollars.
