Fla. police agency entangled in sex scandal; several officers accused of trysts with analyst

Nearly a dozen police officers in Lakeland are under investigation after state and local officials uncovered a widespread sex scandal that has unfolded over eight years.

According to officials, the investigation centers on Sue Eberle, a Lakeland Police crime analyst who says she had consensual and sometimes coerced sex with police officers and one firefighter — and was propositioned by a municipal worker. Eberle's accounts of the liaisons were largely corroborated by her sexual partners and others within the police department, and published in a59-page report from the county's top prosecutor.

The state attorney says he can't prosecute the cases because of a lack of physical evidence and because of how much time has passed since some of the encounters. However, Lakeland's mayor says the officers and employees involved are under an internal investigation.
