In 2011, Laura Zylstra, an agent from the Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI), an agency controlled by then Attorney General Marty Jackley, filed a sexual harassment claim against a former Brown County deputy who made inappropriate comments towards her. Zylstra was then demoted and transferred from Aberdeen to Pierre. She resigned in 2012.

In September 2015, Zylstra sued DCI Director Bryan Gortmaker claiming she had been retaliated against with response to sexual harassment.
