More Lawsuits Filed Against Former State Probation Officer

May 10, 2013

More lawsuits have been filed by women against former state probation officer James R. Stanton, already convicted of charges related to allegations of sexually preying on his clients.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that 11 women are suing Stanton and the state, contending that something should have been done.

Stanton worked on alcohol cases and the lawsuits contend that he was using his position of power to gain sexual favors long before his plea deal in 2010.

The women’s attorneys are asking the court to disclose Stanton’s personnel records. He served 3 and a half months and is currently out on probation himself.
