Lawsuit Filed Against Hatter

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.
