DELAWARE, Ohio — A fired female deputy who was linked to the former sheriff has filed a discrimination complaint against the county sheriff's office.

Janine Senanayake claims she was sexually harassed and then unjustly fired from her road-deputy job last month by the acting sheriff, said her Cleveland-based attorney, Avery Friedman.

Acting Sheriff Scott Vance said in the termination letter that she failed to satisfactorily complete her probationary period. In a separate matter concluded the same day, he issued her a one-day suspension for failing to show up at two hearings in municipal court in February.
