The settlement, reached by the city attorney and the plaintiff attorney, must be approved by the City Council. Two other women have filed similar claims.
The officer, Anthony Arevalos, 41, an 18-year veteran, was sentenced in February to eight years and eight months in prison for multiple counts of bribery and assault. A traffic officer, Arevalos threatened to arrest women for traffic offenses unless they allowed him to see and touch their breasts or slip his hand down their pants, according to testimony in court.
Arevalos was fired when charges were filed.
