A third Texas woman -- the second from our area -- has filed suit against Houston-based KBR over a sexual assault while she worked as a contractor in Iraq. The latest lawsuit claims KBR failed to prevent a sexual assault by former KBR Employee David Charles Breda.

The woman claims Breda sexually assaulted her and threatened her not to tell anyone about the attack. Breda was later convicted of sexual assault.

KBR denied some allegations in the lawsuit and told us, "The safety and security of all employees remains KBR's top priority. KBR maintains strong and effective sexual harassment and assault prevention and reporting programs to protect its employees."
