LOS ANGELES (AP) — A woman who alleged that two Los Angeles police officers forced her to have sex has agreed to settle a lawsuit for $575,000.
Her lawyer, Donald Cook, says the deal was reached Monday but it still needs City Council approval.
The woman, a former drug informant, sued the city and veteran narcotics officers James Nichols and Luis Valenzuela in January.
She alleged that the officers preyed on her because she had a criminal record, threatening to send her back to jail unless she had sex with them.
The officers are on leave pending LAPD disciplinary hearings.
An attorney for the city declined to comment on the settlement. Calls to the officers' attorneys weren't immediately returned.
However, Nichols previously has denied wrongdoing.
