Cynthia Donald, a 14-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department (CPD), has filed a civil lawsuit against former CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson alleging that she was subjected to "unwanted and uninvited sexual advances, abuse, harassment, and a hostile work environment" by Johnson, her superior and supervisor, court filings show.

(CNN)Cynthia Donald, a 14-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department (CPD), has filed a civil lawsuit against former CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson alleging that she was subjected to "unwanted and uninvited sexual advances, abuse, harassment, and a hostile work environment" by Johnson, her superior and supervisor, court filings show.

The lawsuit includes allegations of unwanted sexual acts in Johnson's personal office at CPD Headquarters, claims Johnson texted nude photographs to Donald, says Johnson conditioned Donald's employment and advancements within CPD upon her submission to unwanted sexual activity and alleges Lightfoot exacerbated the hostile work environment by ordering Johnson to "dump" Cynthia Donald and have her relocated.

"Mayor Lori Lightfoot had an opportunity to investigate and uncover Eddie Johnson's abusive conduct toward me, she instead ordered Eddie to dump me by demoting me to a desk job," Donald said.

"This case is about sexual and emotional torture and at the hands of those at the highest levels of the Chicago Police Department and city government and it must stop," Steve Hart, attorney for Cynthia Donald, said.

A Law Department spokesperson with Mayor Lightfoot's office responded to the filing, saying, "We are aware of the lawsuit filed by Cynthia Donald against Mr. Johnson and the City.

Mayor Lightfoot emphatically denies, and common sense dictates, that Eddie Johnson ever told the Mayor about allegations of abuse or harassment of Cynthia Donald by Eddie Johnson.

The Chicago Inspector General is set to release the summary of his investigation into former CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson's conduct this week.
