Georgia Deputy Fired for Refusing Threesome with Sheriff

An employee at Georgia’s Clayton County Sheriff’s Office said she was fired because she refused to have a sexual threesome with the sheriff and a female deputy.

The story began developing in April 2011 after the indictment of Clayton County Deputy Alicia Nicole Parkes, who was charged with a felony for using a cellphone to videotape another employee in the bathroom. The sheriff’s office employee who reported the videotaping, LaDonna Williams, claimed she was fired when she refused to engage in a sexual encounter with Parkes and Sheriff Kem Kimbrough.

Williams, a high school dropout, said she did not qualify for her job at the sheriff’s office but Sheriff Kimbrough paid for her GED with county funds. When asked about that by a reporter, Kimbrough said he had “no idea” why the county paid for Williams’ GED.

“He heard that I had failed my test, but I was still allowed to work there. I failed my NCIC test, my GCIC,” said Williams. “The chief of staff told me that the only reason I was hired was because Sheriff Kimbrough wanted me.”

She began receiving personal advances shortly after being hired. “[The Sheriff] gave me a card saying this is my personal number if you need me right away,” Williams said while displaying Kimbrough’s business card with a handwritten number on it.

According to Williams’ internal affairs complaint, Deputy Alicia Parkes began sending nude pictures of herself to Williams, then grabbed her breasts. “I got very angry about that,” said Williams. “The next thing I know she’s asking, ‘Would you have sex with both of us?’”

Williams’ sexual harassment complaint indicated that “both of us” referred to Parkes and Sheriff Kimbrough. She also told investigators about the bathroom videotape. While Parkes was reprimanded, Williams was fired. “I was fired simply because I did not have a threesome between Sheriff Kimbrough and Deputy Parkes,” she claimed.

Kimbrough termed that allegation “absolutely ridiculous.” His past internal affairs record, however, indicates otherwise. When he was a major, Kimbrough was investigated for workplace harassment for having a consensual relationship with a jail guard.

Although Parkes was indicted in March 2011 on two felony counts for obstruction and unlawful eavesdropping and surveillance, she remained on the job as a deputy. The obstruction charge stems from a 2008 incident in which Parkes was accused of jumping on a Clayton County police officer who was arresting one of her relatives.
