Ex-prosecutor: Tarrant DA would 'constantly make comments about my breasts'
Documents released Friday by Tarrant County included the personal journal of Sabrina Sabin, a former prosecutor who in September settled sexual harassment claim against District Attorney Joe Shannon.
Sabrina's journal, obtained Friday through open records requests by the Star-Telegram and other media outlets, explicitly describes an alleged pattern of sexual harassment by Shannon that began in 2008 and lasted until early in 2012.
“Joe would constantly make comments about my breasts and and tell me he would like to see them, touch them,” said one entry. “He would say things like, ‘If you ever decide to surprise me and show them to me, no one has to know.’
“What the hell was I supposed to say to that,” wrote Sabin, 44. “I knew that if I said anything or made an issue out of being sexually harassed, that I would possible loose my job or that he would make my life miserable. I just kept quite and continued to focus on doing my job well.”
