6 Investigates: Allegations of Harassment and Intimidation in City Legal Department

CORPUS CHRISTI - KRIS 6 News continues to investigate the newly hired city attorney who is under investigation by the City of Corpus Christi for alleged inappropriate comments made to during a meeting with her staff.

Today, our investigative unit is in Harlingen where we've requested a copy of a memo from the City of Harlingen that Cotroneo wrote to city staff around the time she resigned.

Sources tell KRIS 6 News that Cotroneo felt unwanted in the last few months of her employment with the city. Today was supposed to be her first day as Corpus Christi's new city attorney.

Last week, city manager Ron Olson accepted Cotroneo's offer to delay her start date due to the investigation that's underway.
