Woman sues over watch-house sexual assault

A woman is suing the Queensland Government and two police officers for nearly $1 million after she was sexually assaulted in a Maroochydore watch-house in 2005.

The 27-year-old woman is seeking $300,000 each from Peter Anthony Buxton, Zane Anthony Slingsby and the State Government.

The claim, which was lodged in the Supreme Court in Brisbane, states Queensland Police and Corrective Services officers failed in their duty of care to the woman.

Both men were sent to jail over the offences.
