The Kauai Police Department settled claims by Officer Mark Begley alleging retaliation and harassment after he encouraged another employee to report an incident of sexual harassment. The case was settled for $1.8 million.
Begley’s complaint centered on former Kauai Police Chief Darryl Perry. Begley alleged that he was subjected to retaliation by the Chief and his subordinates for over nine years, beginning in 2012. Primarily, this retaliation came in the form of investigations which Begley claims were intended to force him out of the Department.
