City to dole out another $250,000 for legal representation for Anthony Arevalos

Council asked to approve spending up to $250,000 for outside legal representation in the cases against Anthony Arevalos

Former San Diego Police Officer Anthony Arevalos continues to cost the City for the sexual assault crimes he committed on unsuspecting women in San Diego's Gaslamp District over a two-year period from 2009 to 2011.

On Tuesday, city councilmembers will be asked to approve paying up to $250,000 to legal outfit Haight, Brown & Bonesteel to defend the City in court. The City Attorney's office has decided against representing Arevalos in court due to a conflict of interest.

As part of the agreement, the City will pay the lead attorney on the case $200 per hour, $185 an hour for associate attorneys, and $100 for paralegal work.

The expenditure is just the latest in what has been a series of payments to Arevalos' victims. For more than a year, the City has settled five cases totaling over $1.25 million, excluding legal fees. The latest came in November 2012, when the City agreed to pay one woman $675,000 in damages. In the weeks prior, four other women received payments of $150,000 (2), $100,000 (1), and $50,000 (1) respectively.

The money for the victims and for outside legal work is paid from the City's Public Liabilities Fund.
