Ex-Cop Accuses Bismarck PD of Discrimination
A female sergeant who was fired from the Bismarck Police Department earlier this year is accusing the department of discrimination against women.
The Bismarck Tribune (via the Associated Press) reports 37-year-old Robyn Krile was fired from her post in March "as the result of an independent letter from a local prosecutor challenging her credibility as a witness."
But Ms. Krile told the Tribune that her termination felt like "a final blow," after years of perceived discrimination based on her "gender," which she disputed in a complaint filed with the state department of labor in January.
Ms. Krile says she's fighting to take back her career and even the playing field for women.
Bismarck Police Chief Dan Donlin says Krile's termination had "nothing to do" with the January complaint she filed.
Robyn Krile graduated from the University of Mary with a degree in social and behavioral sciences, and joined the Bismarck Police Department in 2004.
