Jenkins subsequently threatened the teenager with a stun gun and sexually assaulted him. The victim sued in November 2020, and a settlement was reached in January 2022 for an undisclosed amount. As of January 28, 2022, criminal charges against Jenkins remained pending, and he was fired from the department following the investigation.
