A Tennessee police officer who was dismissed for having multiple sex affairs with other officers claims she was "terrorized" and blamed her superiors for the binge.

Maegan Hall, 26, who made her first public statement, told WTVF that she repeatedly attempted to turn down her serg.03eant at the La Vergne Police Department's advances toward her but that "he wouldn't take no for an answer."

The on-the-job affair with Sgt. Lewis Powell led to sexual encounters with five other cops, reports New York Post.

Maegan Hall has broken her silence for the first time since being fired after a sex scandal with seven officers surfaced - stating that she 'did say no.'

"I know what most people are saying," Hall told the outlet. "You know, 'You could've said no.' I get it. But my response to them is 'I did say no, and he wouldn't take it for an answer.'

"Eventually, I gave in from the pressure."

Several prominent police officers from the La Vergne Police Department are named in the lawsuit, which alleges that they 'took advantage' of her poor mental health and vulnerabilities as she tried to navigate a troubled marriage.

When Hall joined the LaVergne Police Department two years ago as a rookie detective, she was 24 years old.

She intended to work in law enforcement. She now knows that dream is likely gone.

"I remember while applying for the job at the PD they described the environment as a family. But while I was aspiring to protect others, they did not protect me," said Hall.

Most of the country knows what happened by now. Last month, Hall, four additional officers, and the police chief were all fired.

This, after two separate investigations, found that Hall engaged in sexual activity and/or shared intimate photos and videos with several male officers.

Those involved included the chief and two sergeants.

Hall is currently suing those three supervisors as well as the city in federal court for civil rights violations along with her lawyer, Wesley Clark.

"Maegan wasn't looked at as a rookie cop to be trained and promoted. She was looked at like a piece of meat to be sexualized and exploited," said Hall's attorney Wesley Clark with Brazil Clark PLLC, reports News Channel 5.

"I received harassing and threatening messages on my phone daily. I felt like I had been terrorized," said Hall.

"I know what most people are saying. 'You could have said no.' I get it. But my response to them is that I did say no, and he wouldn't take no for an answer. Eventually, I gave in from the pressure," said Hall.

"On several occasions, Hall tried to get out of this relationship, and she was not allowed to," added Clark.

"They isolated me. Shunned me. They accused me, and they blamed me for becoming a victim," Hall said.

Hall was hospitalized at one time because of her depression, which led her to consider suicide.

"My supervisors worked together to take advantage of my vulnerabilities and mental health, and they used it for their gain and their sexual pleasure," Hall said that including police chief Chip Davis.

He was discovered to be aware of what was happening and to have even obtained private images and videos of Hall, according to the independent investigation.

"Who do you turn to when the chief of police is sexually harassing you? How can I get justice when the entire system, including the chief, not only condoned such behavior but participated in it? I was lost, and I felt alone. I had no one to turn to and nowhere to go," said Hall.

Hall is aware that her image will be tarnished by those offensive social media memes forever.

"No woman should ever have to endure this type of abuse. What happened to me at LaVergne Police Department should never happen to anyone," she said.

Hall now claims that all she wants is to move past what occurred at the LaVergne PD.

She is still married, and her entire family is supportive of her.

Hall acknowledged that her faith helped her through the turmoil.

Two supervising sergeants, the police superintendent, and the city of LaVergne are named in Hall's federal lawsuit.
The city has not yet responded to the lawsuit.
