A teen explorer who became involved with the Santa Maria (Calif.) Police officer who was fatally shot by colleagues received $185,000 to settle the case, reports the Los Angeles Times.
The girl was 17 when she became involved with the 29-year-old Albert Covarrubias, who was shot and killed by fellow officers who tried to arrest him at a DUI checkpoint.
The teen claimed in a federal lawsuit that Covarrubias threatened to kill her boyfriend if she didn't have sex with him.

$185k for having sex with a PO? And the city paid? How is the city culpable for the illegal actions of an employee? When they found out about it, they took actions to arrest the subject, not encourage him.
I'm going to tell my wife to complaint to Broward County that she had sex with me, and see if they'll settle for $250k. Ya, that's it, that's the ticket.
