Two Male Police Officers Receive $300,000 In Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

The city of New York will pay $300,000 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by two male police officers against another male police officer. According to published accounts, Leutenant Kieran Crowe was accused to fondling himself in front of two male sergeants. Both police officers agreed to the settlement which was broken down as follows: Sgt. Dominic Coppola will receive $175,000 and Sgt. Sean Gallagher will get $125,000.

Crowe retired from the NYPD in 2008 after he was found guilty of harassing the men. According to documents which were published as part of the investigation Crowe rubbed his crotch, simulated masturbation and wagged his tongue at the sergeants. The incredible defense for Crowe was that he had jock itch.

Crowe said, “It is possible because of medical conditions, but never in the way that these complainants have said.”
