By THE WASHINGTON POST/APWASHINGTON (AP) — A Cibolas National Forest official who worked at the federal Bureau of Land Management for more than 20 years is accused of sexually assaulting an employee.
In a sworn affidavit, the Forest Service official said in an October 2016 incident that he was taking the employee to a location at the Cimadei National Forest in Nevada.

The employee who made the report, who has been identified only as K.G., said in the affidavit that she was relieved that the employee was fired.
The Forest Service’s Office of Inspector General is investigating the allegation.
The woman who made that allegation did not respond to requests for comment.
