NBC San Diego exposed the ticket fixing scandal involving Sgt. Kevin Friedman, and two prosecutors in the District Attorney's office. Now there's more signs of trouble. Tony Shin reports
A new lawsuit against former San Diego Police officer Anthony Arevalos is also targeting a police sergeant who is already facing charges in an unrelated case.
Jane Doe was the prosecution's key witness in the trial against Arevalos and her lawyers have now filed a civil lawsuit.
It targets Arevalos, the San Diego Police Department and Sgt. Kevin Friedman, who was Arevalos' direct supervisor.
Friedman is also the sergeant who NBC 7 recently exposed in a ticket fixing scandal involving the District Attorney's office.
In the lawsuit, Jane Doe accuses the police department and Friedman of creating an atmosphere that went beyond the "code of silence."
It alleges that a lack of supervision and training allowed Arevalos to believe he was above the law and quote" was not going to be punished."
She also accuses Arevalos, Friedman and the police department of trying to cover up the crimes.
