SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A grand jury panel says sexual relationships and complaints are so common in the investigations bureau at a Southern California district attorney’s office that the workplace environment may have become hostile.

The Orange County Register reports Tuesday (https://bit.ly/2ufMM5H ) that the panel began its investigation after hearing complaints about preferential treatment and retaliation in the bureau because of these sexual relationships.

The report did not investigate specific allegations or provide data. But the panel concluded that these perceptions of the office are problematic.

The allegations include inappropriate sexual jokes, unwelcome sexual behavior between some members of management and subordinates and unwelcome touching.

District Attorney Tony Rackauckas says his agency has been conducting an internal investigation into the allegations.
