Keene claims that Hawkins had her indicted on theft charges to keep her from moving forward with a domestic violence petition. She said Hawkins was in charge of that investigation.
She dropped the domestic violence petition five days after she was indicted. The indictment was dismissed, according to court documents.
She also claims to know of four others, three of whom were aged 16, 18 and 19 at the time, who were sexually assaulted or coerced into performing sexual acts on him.
Hawkins has denied the allegations in court documents. He claims Keene sought employment with the 911 center and gave him her application, which he then forwarded to the 911 center's director, court documents showed.
"I don't mind being tried in court, as I will deny all the allegations," Hawkins wrote on his Facebook page. "It's a civil suit for money. I just hate my family having to go through all the mudslinging in the media again."
Jury selection is set for 8:30 a.m. Sept. 30, 2014, in Elkins. The trial will begin immediately after, with U.S. Chief Judge John Preston Bailey presiding.
