$15,000 Paid in WA DOC Sexual Discrimination Claim

Kristy Ray was a guard at Stafford Creek Correction Facility when she began
receiving sexual advances from Sergeant Chad Wheelock. Ray rebuffed these
advances, and after multiple complaints an investigation ensued. Ray was
placed on leave without pay while Wheelock was placed on leave with pay. As
a result of the investigation, Wheelock was terminated and Ray remained on
leave. On April 19, 2002, Ray settled a claim filed with the Office of Risk
Management when the Washington DOC agreed to pay her $15,000, voluntarily
demote her to Office Assistance Senior position, reinstate sick and annual
leave, and assure no break in service occurred. Ray was represented by
Chrisopher Cooker of Olympia. See: Kristy Ray, Division of Risk Management,
Claim no. 31053811.
