DA's Office Harassment

Las Vegas, NV: (Apr-15-08) Love Holloway brought a lawsuit against the county of Las Vegas, alleging that she was sexually harassed by Peter Baldonado, a former investigator in the DA's office. The suit claimed that Baldonado forced her to have sex with him. Holloway further stated that past and current officials in the DA's office knew of similar complaints by women against former investigator Peter Baldonado, but failed to take proper action. In his defense, Peter Baldonado pleaded the equivalent of no contest in April 2004 to one count of coercion and another of misconduct.

In a recent development in the case, county commissioners were urged to approve a $400,000 settlement with Holloway, to resolve the sexual harassment allegations. County finance officials recommend commissioners accept the settlement in a bid to avoid a bigger payout that may result out of prolonged litigation.
