Anchorage Pays $5.5M To Cop's Rape Victims

September 05, 2012  | 

The city of Anchorage has paid more than $5.5 million to settle 11 lawsuits that stemmed from the actions of convicted rapist and disgraced Anchorage Police Officer Anthony Rollins, reports the Anchorage Daily News.

The settlements range from $52,500 to $1.7 million. Rollins was convicted and sentenced to 87 years in prison.

After the scandal, the department closed some substations and installed cameras in others. The department also fine-tuned its lie-detector test used on police applicants. The International Association of Chiefs of Police is scheduled to present a review of the department this month.

Nice when somebody who makes your job more difficult gets what is coming to him. I'm surprised a black male who raped 7 women ever made it to court. The women are getting a 30 year payout...nothing like a yearly reminder of what happened to them.

This is just unbelievable, LE keeps getting black eyes from these kinds of officers. In LE when do more to cover our ass today then ever before. How in the hell do these scumbags get hired. I am sorry to all the victims who had to suffer due to his actions and have had their trust betrayed by the officer who was to serve and protect them. I also agree that this 30 year pay out is completely unacceptable, pay the victims and let them try to move forward with their lives.
