MADISON - The Wisconsin Department of Corrections is once again investigating a female prison supervisor who has cost taxpayers $105,000 in settlements related to sexual harassment claims. 

Agency spokesman Tristan Cook confirmed that Susan Nygren is currently on paid leave while corrections officials look into undisclosed claims against her. 

"DOC has received allegations of work rule violations regarding Sue Nygren and has placed her on administrative leave while we conduct an internal personnel investigation," Cook said. 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on the first settlement involving Nygren in January and then on the second one involving her earlier this month.

The women who received the 2017 settlements were both fired from the state prison system and at least one is barred from ever working at a Wisconsin prison again.
