A southwestern Michigan sheriff's deputy who said a sergeant videotaped her while she was in a private office pumping breast milk for her newborn is expected to get a $200,000 settlement.
MLive.com reports the Kalamazoo County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday approved a payment of about $130,000 to the employee and her spouse, plus $69,000 in attorney fees.
Thom Canny, the county's corporation counsel, declined to identify the employee or her position with the county. A request in December for a special prosecutor to review whether criminal charges are merited in the case identified her as a deputy.
No charges have been announced in the case.
Canny says the sergeant involved has since resigned from the sheriff's office. He says the sergeant "contends it was an accidental taping."
