Lexington, KY (AP) A public health care lawyer in Lexington, Ky., is being sued by a woman who alleges she was drugged and sexually assaulted by a Lexington-area lawyer while working for the Lexington Police Department.
A federal lawsuit filed last week in U.S. District Court in Louisville claims the lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of a woman named Laura Miller, was filed “without the consent of Laura Miller,” and alleges that Miller and her former partner, John O’Keefe, conspired to defraud the public health system.
O’Keefe and Miller allegedly paid for sexual acts that were not consensual and engaged in other sexual misconduct, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit accuses O’Keefe and Miller of “sexual, drug, and alcohol abuse” and “sexual misconduct” and alleges they committed sexual battery and false imprisonment.
O-Keefe was placed on paid administrative leave and Miller resigned from her job as a public health lawyer.
She is now suing O’Keeffe in federal court in Louisville.OKeefe was placed under a federal investigation and placed on administrative leave.
A spokesman for O’Reilly declined to comment.
A spokeswoman for Odeck declined to respond to a request for comment.
The Kentucky Attorney General’s Office declined to answer questions about the lawsuit or Odecker’s relationship to Miller.
Miller’s attorneys did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
Lexington police said in a news release that the lawsuit was filed last Friday and was filed under seal.
The release said the case is being investigated by the Kentucky Attorney-General’s Office and the U. S. Department of Justice.
Miller and Odecki are also facing separate lawsuits in New York and Massachusetts over alleged sexual misconduct and abuse.
A Boston man, Daniel Bialas, filed a lawsuit last month in Massachusetts against Odeke and Miller.
He also is suing Odecko and Miller in federal courts in Kentucky.
Bialas alleges that in 2015, he and another man went to a bar in Lexington to watch a film called “The Devil’s Advocate” with Odeek and Miller, who were both there.
Biales alleges that he and the other man said they had sex with Odesky and Miller “on multiple occasions” and said they made more than $20,000 from that transaction.
Odeck and Miller were also accused of sexual battery in New Hampshire in 2016.
Odek was charged with two counts of sexual assault and battery on a minor, according the complaint filed in Manchester.
