A former San Diego police officer accused of trying to elicit sex from seven women he pulled over in the Gaslamp District was convicted of eight felony counts and four misdemeanors Thursday.
Jurors found Anthony Arevalos, 41, guilty of multiple counts of asking for a bribe, and assault and battery by a police officer.
Reading the entire article and the defenses position was quite disturbing. He has been fired and was fired before the trial had reached it’s conclusion. The whole situation is quite disturbing given the free reign officers are given and the lack of accountability in many instances. This situation could have easily been one of those though thankfully it wasn’t.
State Sponsored Criminal Count HM: Anthony Arevalos
Because when you’re a cop you can solicit whoever you want as a bribe after pulling them over.
