HENRY COUNTY, Ga. -

A former Henry County police officer accused of risqué behavior with some of her coworkers claims that she's the real victim.

Erin Hudgins is one of three officers fired last month in a sex scandal that also led to the demotion of four others. She's accused of risqué behavior with fellow cops, both on and off-duty in places like a Stockbridge cemetery and church parking lot.

Hudgins' attorney, Steve Frey, she was unfairly fired.  

Henry County locked the doors to keep the media out of a proceeding that is typically open to the public.  

Another fired officer, Nicky Lawrence, also appealed his termination.

A decision by the county manager is expected within 30 days.
