Deters Fires Rebecca Collins

Newly sworn-in Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters has fired the woman who had an affair with his predecessor.  Deters was sworn in yesterday in a private ceremony.  He replaced Mike Allen, who publicly admitted to having an affair with Rebecca Collins after she filed a sexual harassment complaint against him.  Although Collins has already cleared out her office, The Enquirer quotes her lawyer, Randy Freking, as saying it's illegal to fire a person for filing a complaint:  "We're disappointed, but her getting laid off increases the value of her claims because now she's out of of a job because of what mike allen coerced her into."
