Former deputy sheriff sues Mason school chief for defamation | The West Virginia Record

A former Mason County Sheriff's deputy alleges the superintendent of schools defamed him in remarks she gave to the media about him being investigated for making inappropriate remarks about a student's T-shirt.

Suzanne Dickens is named in a three-count defamation suit filed by Robert Glenn in Mason Circuit Court. In his complaint filed March 9, Glenn alleges Dickens last year prematurely affirmed to a television station Glenn, while working as the prevention resource officer at Hannan Senior and Junior High School sexually harassed a female student.

In West Virginia, prevention resource officers are uniformed police officers who, among other things, serve as security guards in public schools, and teach students about bullying.
