London, November 27 (ANI): A lesbian soldier, who had accused a male sergeant for sexual harassment, has won 187,000 pounds in compensation.

Lance Bombardier Kerry Fletcher, of the Royal Artillery, had claimed that her Army career had taken the tumble after she had been propositioned by a sergeant, reports Times Online.

The 32-year-old alleged that she had been asked by the officer to join in a threesome with another woman following which he may successfully convert her from being a lesbian.

Fletcher, who had sought 400,000 pounds in compensation, told a Leeds employment tribunal that her rejection of advances had led her to a sustained campaign of victimisation.

The tribunal said: This is as severe a case of victimisation following an allegation of sexual harassment as one could see in an employment tribunal. (ANI)
