The San Diego City Council has agreed to pay close to $800,000 to settle a sexual assault lawsuit filed by a woman, who was subjected to sexual assault by a police officer. The lawsuit alleged that the officer asked her for sexual favors after pulling her over for traffic violations.

The officer, Anthony Arevalos is at the center of a massive sexual assault and battery scandal at the San Diego Police Department. The scandal involves the officer pulling over women for supposed traffic violations, and then proceeding to demand sexual favors.

Last year, Arevalos was convicted of stopping at least eight women, and pulling them over for supposed traffic violations before proceeding to demand sexual favors from them. He was convicted of several charges including sexual battery, and other charges. He was sentenced to eight years in prison. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

One of the women, who says that she was pulled over by Anthony Arevalos and then sexually assaulted in this manner, proceeded to file a civil lawsuit against the San Diego Police Department.   Since the scandal broke, Arevalos has been fired by the Police Department. He was a veteran officer of the force.

In most of the charges against Anthony Arevalos, the women alleged that the officer pulled them over, and then committed various forms of sexual misbehavior. In one case, he asked a woman to remove her underwear, and touched her genitals, and in other cases, he made inappropriate comments about the women. According to the charges against him, he specifically focused on young female drivers.
