Public Peccancy — 21 October 2011
The Proof is in the Panties

A San Diego police officer is in hot water after evidenced surfaced linking him to one of his alleged victims. Anthony Arevalos, 41, an 18-year veteran of the San Diego Police Department, was fired earlier this year after the department learned that Arevalos was urging females to perform sexual favors in order to avoid traffic citations.  Arevalos was charged with 21 felony counts, including assault under the color of authority and sexual battery.  On Thursday, a criminalist testified that a pair of panties that were found in Arevalos’ work locker contained DNA that matched one of the officer’s accusers.

If convicted, Arevalos faces 20 years in prison.  We suspect that the ex-cop and hundreds of convicts will probably have lot of catching up to do.

    • Thank you for your comment, Angry. According to our source, cited above, the panties were found in his locker. The first sentence in the source’s report says:

      “A mixture of DNA found on panties in the work locker of a former San Diego police officer accused of trying to elicit sexual favors from female drunken driving suspects matched one of the women, and also could have come from the defendant, a criminalist testified Thursday.”

      We based our article on the information from this source. If it is inaccurate, we apologize and we would be grateful for a link to more accurate information.

      Thank you for reading. 🙂

  2. Sounds like someone’s got their panties in a knot. ;D
