Lo­rain man sues city, po­lice over sex case

The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - LOCAL NEWS -

A Lo­rain man is su­ing the Lo­rain Po­lice Depart­ment, the city of Lo­rain and four po­lice per­son­nel for $1 mil­lion.

Charles Brown filed the suit with­out a lawyer Nov. 13 in Lo­rain County Com­mon Pleas Court. It names the city, the depart­ment and Chief Cel Rivera, Sgt. Buddy Sivert, Of­fi­cer Steyven G. Curry and De­tec­tive Augello, of the Lo­rain Po­lice Depart­ment as de­fen­dants.

A search of lo­rain­po­lice.com’s list of per­son­nel does not show a De­tec­tive Augello as serv­ing with the depart­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, in July 2016, Brown so­licited one of his daugh­ters to have sex with him.

Brown is await­ing a Jan. 25 trial on charges of ag­gra­vated sex­ual bat­tery, at­tempted en­dan­ger­ing chil­dren and do­mes­tic vi­o­lence for the al­le­ga­tions.

The com­plaint al­leges the de­fen­dants “will­ing or un­will­ing lead to the fact or mak­ing (the vic­tim) into a ho, pros­ti­tute and heroin ad­dict.”

It also claims the de­fen­dants de­tained his two daugh­ters and gave the vic­tim per­mis­sion to break into Brown’s house and steal $8,000 worth of elec­tron­ics, en­dan­gered the lives of the two daugh­ters, al­lowed him and the two daugh­ters to be as­saulted, de­famed his char­ac­ter and caused pain and suf­fer­ing.

The fil­ing claims the depart­ment “re­al­ized they had made a mis­take” by ar­rest­ing Brown and at­tempted to hide it by doc­tor­ing record­ings and not keep­ing his fam­ily safe. It claims this is re­venge for a past law­suit he filed against the depart­ment.

Lo­rain po­lice Capt. Roger Watkins di­rected all ques­tions about the suit to the Pat Ri­ley, law di­rec­tor of the city of Lo­rain, who de­clined to com­ment hav­ing not seen the fil­ing.
