Teen Explorer Sues Agency, Officer's Widow
August 15, 2012
A teenage girl who was in a sexual relationship with a Santa Maria (Calif.) Police officer has sued the city over alleged negligence in operating a police department youth program.
The girl—known in the federal lawsuit as Jane Doe—was 17 when she was involved with Albert Covarrubias Jr., an officer who was fatally shot Jan. 29 as other members of the Santa Maria department tried to arrest him on suspicion of sex crimes.
The suit also seeks damages from Covarrubias' estate and his widow, Gloria, whom he had wed just three weeks before his death.
