Fayette County Jail investigation

Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry says he's going to investigate personnel practices at the Fayette County Jail, following a third lawsuit against the facility.

A female jail employee filed a lawsuit Wednesday, alleging harassment.

It's the third such lawsuit filed by a female jail employee this year.

Mayor Newberry says he'll pick an organization to investigate the jail next week.

The city won't comment specifically on the lawsuits.
