City of Lynwood Sued by Former Employee

A former Lynwood city employee says Councilman Edwin Hernandez constantly harassed her, but the city did nothing to stop it. 

Monica Ochoa told reporters that Hernandez did not let up. 

"Wanting me and begging me to go out to dinner with him. Lastly, because I said 'no' and I continued saying 'no', he desperately wanted me, invited me to go to bed with him." 

Ochoa says the city investigated her reports, but, nothing was ever done and hid the results. She says the city offered her a settlement, but nothing ever came from that. 

Ochoa first filed the complaint against Hernandez in February. The city issued a statement on Feb 18th saying the allegations were "serious and troubling" and that a third party would conduct an investigation. 

Hernandez has filed a lawsuit of his own against the city claiming officials did not handle the investigation properly and his due process rights were trampled.
