CONWAY, S.C. (AP) — A judge has ordered the Horry County Police Department to turn over records in a lawsuit stemming from allegations of sexual misconduct by a former department officer.

The state grand jury last week indicted for four former department officers, including former Detective Allen Large. The indictments allege the former officers coerced women into sex or ignored nearly 100 cases they were supposed to be investigating.

Several women have sued the department alleging sexual harassment by Large.

News outlets report that on Tuesday, Circuit Judge Roger Henderson ordered the department to produce copies and internal files on all citizen complaints about sexual advances or sexual assaults by police officials for the past decade.

Personnel files for two former officers also must be produced.
