The teenage daughter of a police dispatcher at the center of a Northern California sexual misconduct scandal involving two dozen officers has filed suit against one of the law enforcement agencies, her attorney announced Friday, Aug. 18, 2017. The 19-year-old filed the federal lawsuit in San Francisco Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017. Whent was forced to resign in June 2016 and the department cycled through two other chiefs in less than a month before the city's top administrator took over management of the police.
