HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Potential trial dates have been set for three lawsuits filed against the Horry County Police Department that allege misconduct within the department.

According to scheduling orders filed in the U.S. District Court, district of South Carolina, a trial in the lawsuit filed by plaintiffs identified simply as “Jane Doe” and “John Doe” could begin on Sept. 15, 2017 at the earliestt.

Two additional lawsuits, where the plaintiffs are identified as “Jane Doe 2” and “Jane Doe 3,” respectively, could go to trial on Oct. 30, 2017 at the earlies, according to court documents.

The “Jane Doe” and “John Doe” lawsuit was filed in April. It alleges that former HCPD Det. Allen Large, who was assigned to her sexual assault case, did not thoroughly investigate.

Police eventually made an arrest after a review of this and other cases.

The “Jane Doe 2” lawsuit was filed in May and claimed that after Large was assigned to investigate her rape case, he sexually assaulted her in a police vehicle. The plaintiff also alleges the former detective demanded she participate in a nude, videotaped fist-fight with other women while a group of men watched.

In the “Jane Doe 3” lawsuit, the plaintiff alleged Large coerced her into nude catfights and sexually assaulted her.

A fourth lawsuit, where the plaintiff is identified as Jane Doe, alleges she called the HCPD in 2015 to report a sexual assault. Large, who was assigned to the case, reportedly sexually assaulted her, the suit states.

Large has filed counterclaims in three of the lawsuits.
