INDICE DE GALERIAS
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Centerville woman has filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming a Centerville officer maliciously charged her with a crime after she refused to have her daughter examined for possible evidence of sexual abuse.
The Daily Iowegian reports (http://bit.ly/107L8AC ) Heather Dawn Huebner filed the lawsuit in January. A trial is scheduled for July 21, 2014.
Huebner's suit alleges that in 2011, Centerville officer Kenneth Reistroffer suspected her then 12-year-old daughter of being sexually abused and demanded she be examined and evidence collected.
After she denied being assaulted and a doctor told Huebner there wasn't evidence of sexual abuse, Huebner refused.
Police charged Huebner with neglect or abandonment and child endangerment. Those charges were dismissed.
Police Chief Tom Demry disputes the allegations but says he can't comment because of the lawsuit.
