Woman Sues South Carolina Station

The South Carolina woman that was arrested for leaving her 9-year-old daughter at a park while she worked at a nearby McDonald’s, is suing WJBF in North Augusta, S.C.

The station posted video Monday of the police interrogation of Debra Harrell, but that video, obtained with a Freedom of Information Act request, included Harrell giving the spelling of her name, her address — and her Social Security number.

A number of people on social media took the station to task for including that in the video. After about an hour online, WJBF edited out the personal information. 

Robert Phillips, Harrell’s attorney, confirmed Thursday that he is filing a lawsuit on behalf of Harrell against the reporter, Deon Guillory, and the station.

The station declined comment on the lawsuit.
