A Sacramento County Superior Court Jury delivered a verdict in favor of four female deputies in a sexual harassment lawsuit against Sacramento County. The verdict was delivered shortly after 4 p.m. this afternoon.

The lawsuit was filed by four female deputies, one of whom is now on medical retirement, that claimed they were discriminated against by deputies who are now under the command of Sheriff Scott Jones. One of the officers, now Jones' undersheriff Erik Manness, was a Captain at the County Jail when the deputies confronted him regarding what they felt was inappropriate behavior with another female deputy.

The plaintiffs contended they were harassed during the time Jones was commanding officer of the jail in 2007-2008 or after his election to Sheriff in 2010 as a result of their actions.

Details of damages awarded are not immediately available.

6:41 p.m. Updated to reflect the suit was against Sacramento County, not the Sacramento County Sheriff as originally reported.
