AUGUSTA, Maine — A state panel agreed Monday that a Windham police officer was subjected to sexual harassment by a fellow officer and was retaliated against when she reported it. The ongoing retaliation by her co-workers could threaten her life, according to the female officer's attorney.

Danielle Cyr of Auburn still works at the Windham Police Department, where she said a male co-worker touched her, urinated in front of her, yelled at her in front of civilians, said grotesque things around her and more.
