ST. LOUIS (AP) – A former east-central Missouri sheriff’s deputy facing statutory rape and corruption charges now is being sued in federal court by a woman who claims he drugged and sexually assaulted her in 2012.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 51-year-old Marty Rainey resigned from his Gasconade County job in November. Rainey and another man each were accused in January of sexual assault, statutory rape and other charges.

The unidentified woman who sued Rainey on Monday in St. Louis is among the alleged victims in the criminal case.

A message seeking comment was left Friday with Frank Carlson, Rainey’s attorney in the criminal case. Online court records don’t show who is representing Rainey in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit also names Gasconade County Sherff Randy Esphorst. He didn’t immediately return a message Friday.
