    Arevalos did not show any emotion as the verdicts were read.

    The former San Diego police officer convicted on multiple felony counts of sexual battery, assault and asking for bribes won't be sentenced until 2012.

    Anthony Arevalos, who was convicted Nov. 17, was scheduled to be sentenced before the end of December.

    In a hearing Friday, a judge moved that sentencing to February 10.

    Arevalos faces ten years in prison for preying on young, female drivers during traffic stops made in the Gaslamp Quarter from 2009 to 2011.

    In a split decision, jurors convicted Anthony Arevalos on multiple felonies including sexual battery, assault and asking for a bribe as well as misdemeanor false imprisonment. Tony Shin reports.

    When one victim was pulled over by Arevalos in September 2009, he insisted on "favors" for letting her go without a citation.

    Another was told she could avoid DUI charges if she pulled down the top of her dress in January 2010.

    The former officer put his hand down another woman's pants and moved his hand from front to back after asking her to flash him in October 2010.
