  • (Leah Hogsten  |  The Salt Lake Tribune)     ’I lost everything because of this,’ said former West Jordan police officer Aaron Jensen while enduring and eventually fighting ’systemic harassment’ at his workplace during a news conference, June 22, 2017 at the Utah Capitol. Jensen has won a nearly $3 million jury award on his claims of malicious prosecution and retaliation by the West Jordan Police Department. The years-long saga began when Jensen said he was the target of relentless sexual harassment by police supervisors while on the force.
