The City of Chicago is poised to pay $415,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a woman who claims she was sexually assaulted by two Chicago Police officers who were on-duty at the time of the alleged incident.
The incident happened on March 30, 2011. The chain of events is recounted in both the May 1, 2015 Chicago Tribune article titled “City poised to pay $415,000 to settle sex assault suit against on-duty cops” as well as the May 1, 2015 Chicago Sun-Times article titled “City pays $415,000 to drunk woman who accused two officers of sexual assault.”
An excerpt from the Chicago Sun-Times article:
The officers were on duty and in uniform when they offered the victim a ride home to Rogers Park from Wrigleyville near Sheffield and Addison at 2 a.m. on March 30, 2011.
The woman, who had been drinking at a friend’s home, attempted to enter the back seat of the marked squad car, but Clavijo ushered her onto his lap in the front seat, where he sexually assaulted her while Vasquez went into a liquor store, prosecutors said after the incident.
The woman was allegedly sexually assaulted again after the Chicago Police Officers took the woman back to her apartment.
Additional details and possible updates concerning the alleged sexual assaults and lawsuit settlement can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times articles mentioned above.
