British Army
Apologizes to Harassed Lesbian Soldier

The British Ministry of Defense apologized to a lesbian soldier who claimed that a male sergeant sexually harassed her, BBC News reports. Lance Bombardier Kerry Fletcher won a lawsuit filed in 2007 against the ministry.

Fletcher said that the staff sergeant accused of the harassment and other male colleagues tried to sabotage her career because she turned down his advances. He pestered her for sex and sent her inappropriate text messages, she says.

Fletcher, 32, was a 10-year veteran who retired from the army in February.

In addition to the apology, she is seeking PS400,000 ($714,000) in damages. She will be notified how much of the damages she will receive within the next four weeks. (Michelle Garcia, The Advocate)
