(KDKZ-TV) A Scott County Sheriff’s Deputy alleges in a lawsuit that she faced sexual discrimination when she was removed from her job as jail administrator and replaced by an inexperienced male deputy.

Deputy Tina Kolwyck filed the lawsuit last week against the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, county government and Sheriff Wes Drury.

The lawsuit alleges Drury treated Kolwyck unfairly because she was forced to take medical leave in 2016 after suffering a heart attack and because she is a woman. In court documents, Kolwyck accuses Drury and his deputies of making sexist and vulgar remarks about female colleague’s genitals.

Kolwyck is seeking more than $150,000 in total damages.
