The girl, now 18, says she was sunbathing legally in Marbletown at 2 p.m. on June 2, 2008, when Geskie, in uniform, approached her, claiming she was trespassing. She says he searched her purse, and claimed to find drug paraphernalia.
The complaint continues: "Deputy Sheriff Geskie then indicated in sum or substance that if the plaintiff did not remove her clothes, she would be arrested, placed in prison and he would notify her prospective college institution of her arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia. Deputy Geskie recorded the name of her future college in a note. Deputy Geskie, while in full uniform and with his service weapon on his person indicated to the plaintiff that, in sum or substance, that she had three options:
(1) go to prison and have her school informed of her arrest;
(2) perform oral sex upon him; or
(3) have sexual intercourse with him.
Deputy Geskie further ordered the plaintiff that upon the removal of all of her clothes, she was [to] spin around for him several times so that he could see all of her exposed, naked body. Under color of law and under direct threat of incarceration and imprisonment, Deputy Sheriff Jeffrey Geskie did force the plaintiff to have oral sex with him including ejaculating in the plaintiff's mouth and face. Deputy Sheriff Jeffrey Geskie forced her to perform oral sex while he was wearing his uniform and under the threat of incarceration."
The complaint adds: "On two separate occasions, Deputy Sheriff Geskie, the County of Ulster and the Ulster County Sheriff's Department have been sued by members of the public for his violent and unconstitutional, unlawful acts. (See attached Exhibit 'A,' Boos v County of Ulster, Ulster County Sheriff's Department and Deputy Jeffrey Geskie - Case Number 1:07-cv-00828 filed on 8/15/07, and Exhibit 'B,' Krom v County of Ulster, Ulster County Sheriff's Department and Deputy Jeffrey Geskie - Case Number 06-CV-0760 filed on June 19, 2006).
"Upon information and belief, following the previous complaints against Deputy Sheriff Geskie, no action was taken by the municipality, County of Ulster, or the Ulster County Sheriff's Department. More egregious is the fact that the Ulster County Sheriff's Department awarded Deputy Sheriff Jeffrey Geskie meritorious service awards for 2005, 2006 and 2007 despite having knowledge of his previous unlawful acts against citizens and the public at large. Said awards condoned the acts of Deputy Geskie."
She demands $15 million. She is represented in Federal Court by Joseph O'Connor of Kingston.
