Lawsuit Filed – 

May 4, 2020 – ‘We are proud of Ms. Pierce for her courage in exposing this unlawful conduct.’

The affair was cause for Pierce to relapse from a period of sobriety, according to the suit. She later turned down his advances and received text messages from Haggerty requesting nude pictures of herself, according to screenshots of the messages included in the lawsuit.

After a brief stint in a detox Pierce in November had another relapse and while still drunk called Haggerty for help, according to the lawsuit.

That’s when Haggerty ‘exploited’ Pierce and forced her to have sexual intercourse, the lawsuit claims.
