A woman has been awarded $95 million in compensation in a sexual harassment case against her former employers.

Ashley Alford, in her mid 20s, won the award from her former employers Aaron's of St Louis after a manager allegedly attacked her in a stockroom, lifting her shirt and masturbating over her while holding her down.

Prosecutors alleged Richard Moore - who is still awaiting trial - would pinch Miss Alford and made inappropriate comments before the October 2006 attack and once sneaked up behind her while she sat on the stockroom floor and hit her on the head with his penis.
