TULSA, Okla. – A district judge has approved judgments totaling $325,000 in a lawsuit against a former Tulsa County sheriff’s deputy convicted of sexual battery and indecent exposure.

The Tulsa World  reports that Gerald Nuckolls agreed to a $300,000 judgment approved Tuesday, which concludes a lawsuit filed by a woman.

The woman accused Nuckolls of inappropriately touching her and exposing himself to her while on duty. Nuckolls maintained throughout his trial that the behavior was consensual, but conceded that he had violated Sheriff’s Office policies.

He was sentenced to eight years in prison in the case.

A $25,000 judgment offered by the Tulsa Sheriff’s office was also agreed upon.
