A woman identified by the initials "K.C." filed a complaint in Pierce County Superior Court Wednesday against Pacific Mayor Cy Sun, accusing him of sexual abuse and exploitation when she was a teenager.

The alleged crimes took place for two years in the late 1960s beginning when the plaintiff was 14 years old. Sun would have been in his late 30s at the time.

The woman claims the abuse happened at Sun's home in Tacoma. (Read the complaint below.)

Sun is engaged in an increasingly contentious dispute with Pacific workers. He is attempting to fire police officers, the city attorney, the city clerk and others because he alleges fraud and abuse. City employees, however, say Sun's actions are without merit. The King County Sheriff's Office is investigating Sun's actions.
