Barbour County Sheriff John Hawkins has been making headlines for the past, week after a woman filed a lawsuit claiming he sexually assaulted her.
Well, it looks like it's not close to being over. That's another suit has been filed, and this time, for defamation.
Hawkins said he heard investigators were paying people to sign false statements in the other lawsuit against him. Hawkins didn't identify anyone by name in his Facebook post, but Streets believes the post was about him.
Hawkins has denied the claims, but Keene's lawyers said they have proof it's true.
This new case was filed in Barbour County Circuit Court.
