Woman sues Tulsa, officers under investigation

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A woman involved in an investigation into
alleged police corruption in Tulsa is suing the city and two law
officers.
An attorney for Larita Barnes filed the lawsuit Friday in U.S.
District Court in Tulsa. It claims undercover officer Jeff
Henderson and former U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives agent Brandon McFadden fabricated a May 2007 drug buy
for which Barnes and her father were convicted and sentenced to
prison.
Barnes and her father were released last year after an informant
said he lied about the drug buy.
McFadden has pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in the case
while Henderson's attorney declined comment on the lawsuit.
Barnes is asking for $2 million in damages from both Henderson
and McFadden and from the city.
