The lone Kentucky police officer was sued on Tuesday who had earlier been charged in connection with the raid that led to the unfortunate death of Breonna Taylor in 2018. He has been sued for an alleged sexual assault as the then-officer Brett Hankison had left the girl mentally battered and physically injured after violently, willfully, painfully, and intentionally sexually assaulting her while on duty, according to the Louisville attorney Margo Borders.
According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Borders alleged that she was offered a ride by Hankison from a bar and he later attacked her. Moreover, she also alleged that she was unconsciously assaulted as Hankison invited himself into her apartment and began harassing her sexually.
Around the same time, another woman came up with similar allegations against Hankison wherein he himself on her after offering her a ride from a bar in a marked vehicle and sexually assaulted her. In the lawsuit filed in Jefferson County, Borders called Hankison a sexual predator and claimed that she tried her best in yelling at him to get him off her as soon as she regained consciousness.
According to the Courier-Journal, the lawsuit stated that Hanksion had messaged Borders to suggest that the two of them had been involved in a consensual relationship. While executing a search warrant at Taylor’s home on March 13, Detective Myles Cosgrove, Hankison, and Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly reportedly shot her. Later, Hankison was charged with wanton endangerment and fired for shooting into Taylor’s neighborhood’s home and not for those shots that led to her eventual death.
