A former Henderson Police Officer has been accused of sexual misconduct during his time as a Top FBI Official in New York State.

According to an investigation done by the Associated Press, James Hendricks has been accused of sexual harassment by eight women who also worked at the agency.

The claims were part of a federal report that called Hendricks a "skilled predator." The report went on detailing allegations that Hendricks made unwelcome advances, touched women inappropriately, and asked at least one to have sex in a conference room.

Hendricks retired from the FBI, last year after serving nearly two decades with the agency. In an online bio, Hendricks says his last position with the agency was Special Agent In Charge managing the field office in Albany, New York.

According to the AP, this isn't the only time Hendricks' name has come up tied to misconduct. He was also involved in a report done by their investigative team last year, which "found a pattern of supervisors avoiding discipline in sexual misconduct cases."

According to an online profile for Hendricks, he started with the Henderson Police Department in 1992 and was promoted to a sergeant before leaving in 1998.

We're tracking more active weather that's expected to hit our area early to late afternoon. All eyes are on a cold front moving in from the northwest. It looks as though some of the storms embedded within this line of rainfall may produce both wind gusts in excess of 40 or 50 mph along with pockets of large hail. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center of America has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat index for this afternoon and early evening. Our far southwestern communities are under a Slight Risk "2" - those communities include portions of Illinois (Saline, Hamilton, Gallatin, White, Hardin Counties) and Kentucky (Union, Crittenden, Caldwell Counties).
