FRANKFORT, Ind.(WLFI)- A lawsuit was filed against the Frankfort Police Department and the City of Frankfort after a woman said she was raped by four men at a home on the 500 block of East Washington St. in Frankfort last year.

The lawsuit goes on to state the woman underwent a rape kit at a hospital, and it showed there were several signs a rape did take place.

The suit goes on to state Detective Robert Hession, who was was handling the case, turned the tape off in the middle of an interview with the victim and told her the rape was her fault.

According to the woman's lawsuit, no warrant was issued to collect evidence from the residence where the rape reportedly took place.

The lawsuit goes on to state Detective Hession and Detective Jason Albaugh had personal relationships with the alleged suspects and that's why a thorough investigation was not conducted. The lawsuit also states the Frankfort Police Department repeatedly approached witnesses and threatened them not to talk about the case.

Through a text message Friday, Mayor Chris McBarnes declined a comment because of quote "pending litigation." He was unable to be reached through phone calls and unavailable when News 18 stopped at City Hall Friday.

Police Chief Troy Bacon also declined a comment through an email he sent News 18 because of pending litigation. He too was unable to be reached through phone calls and was unavailable when we stopped at the police station.

News 18 was referred to the Indianapolis-based attorney who is representing the police department. He was also unavailable for comment and did not return our calls Friday.

However, Frankfort's City Attorney, Les Bergum, stated through a voicemail, "The city of Frankfort is confident that its police department, in all ways, properly conducted the investigation. There were no improprieties on the part of the Frankfort Police Department or any of its officers or staff in connection to this matter."

According to the lawsuit, Detective Hession was demoted due to these allegations.

I seriously doubt that. The city will make this all go away with either a ton of money they don't currently have, or the city's insurance will pick up the tab.

This won't look good for the Stellar Grant now will it.

that the administration doesn't want the Frankfort community that Joe Sheet's got caught sleeping with another girl the the City Finance office while sleeping with the head Finance person.

That's why she (the extra girl Joe slept with) is going to sue the city and others.

The city will have to make this go away.
