SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a Yolo County sheriff’s deputy against Sheriff Ed Prieto has been dismissed.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1IgdxKI ) that a Sacramento federal judge cited missing elements in the complaint as reason to throw out the case.

Deputy Robin Gonzalez filed the lawsuit in July 2013, claiming that Prieto had sexually harassed her over several years. The judge on Friday said the events, which Gonzalez said occurred before March 2012, fell outside the legally mandated limitations period.

Gonzalez claimed that Prieto had stared at her in a “sexual manner” on numerous occasions. The judge declared that there wasn’t substantial evidence that Prieto’s looks had been sexual.

Prieto has been cleared of allegations that he created a hostile work environment three times in less than three years.
