STE. GENEVIEVE, Mo. – A woman with a mental disability has filed a lawsuit alleging that another Missouri sheriff’s deputy sexually assaulted her.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the suit filed Wednesday comes after an earlier lawsuit was settled for nearly $600,000. That lawsuit alleged abuse by former Gasconade County deputy Marty Rainey, who hanged himself while he was jailed on sexual assault charges.

The new lawsuit claims that the woman also was assaulted by a former Montgomery County sheriff’s deputy, who first encountered her in 2015 because she was threatening to kill herself. He is accused of obtaining her contact information and sending her hundreds of messages, some of them explicit. The suit says he sexually assaulted her last year on the Katy Trail.

Montgomery County is about 80 miles northwest of St. Louis.
