Sumter County Sheriff Johnny Hatter is facing another sexual harassment lawsuit, his second in the last decade.
Hatter's former secretary, Margaret Shields, claims she was exposed to a sexually offensive and hostile environment.
A similar lawsuit against Hatter was settled out of court just a few months ago.
Hatter announced late last year that he doesn't plan to run for a fifth term in office, and will retire when his current term expires at the end of the year.
