Sources say that there were two separate police investigations into Havercroft stemming from Thompson's complaint and that of the other swimmer, neither resulting in a criminal indictment. The San Jose Police Department would not immediately comment on the cases.
After her swimming career ended, Thompson became a San Jose police officer and now works in the area of gang prevention with a community organization there. She has two young children, neither of whom she said she would allow to competitively swim because of her experience.
"I hope that I can help prevent future swimmers from having to go through what I went through," she said.
Today's lawsuit is the fifth facing USA Swimming in alleged sexual misconduct cases. Allard is also representing another plaintiff in a separate lawsuit against USA Swimming, a victim of former San Jose-area swim coach Andy King, who was sentenced in January to 40 years in prison for decades of abuse perpetrated against young swimmers.
