Fiedler Law Firm Files Suit for Woman Assaulted by Iowa DOT Driving Instructor

On February 23, 2018, Paige Fiedler and Emily McCarty filed a lawsuit on behalf of Patricia Carrillo against the State of Iowa, the Iowa Department of Transportation, and two DOT executives.

KCCI reported the following details from the lawsuit:

The 49-year-old was seeking a license when she was paired with John Alexander for the test at the Ankeny DOT station in 2016.

Records show Alexander instructed her to pull into a parking lot, handed her his phone and instructed her to delete several photos of his penis. He then forced her to view a video of him masturbating while making comments about her breasts and his sexual history. Alexander gave her a passing score but threatened her to keep quiet. She nonetheless reported the half-hour incident to police.

The State of Iowa has not yet responded to the lawsuit.
