TV Show "Criminal Minds" - Former “Criminal Minds” employee files a lawsuit in California Superior Court against former director of photography, Greg St. Johns, for alleged “continuous sexual harassment” claiming inappropriate touching of his private parts, discrimination, retaliation, failure to investigate, and emotional distress.
The lawsuit includes, among others, the owner networks, for allegedly allowing St. Johns to continue working on the show despite multiple abuse allegations, including a State of California probe. According to a Variety article published last fall, multiple staffers described a toxic environment where St. Johns groped and physically threatened or fired those who complained. Human resources allegedly agreed to look in to the complaints on multiple occasions but did nothing.
