Police Settle With Young Man Who Claims Deputy Raped Him After DUI Arrest

Chris | InformationLiberation

Police will be looting taxpayers to payoff a young man who says a sheriff's deputy raped and sodomized him after a DUI arrest.

Via West Virginia Record:
ELKINS - A Grant County man has reached a settlement in a civil rights suit he filed against a former deputy sheriff he claims raped him following an arrest for driving under the influence.

U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey on Aug. 28 dismissed Dylan Riggleman's suit against former Grant County Sheriff Art Puffenbarger and former Deputy Tony Dixon Cooper when the sides announced they reached agreed to settle it following mediation on July 13. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

[...]In his suit, Riggleman, 22, accused Cooper, 34, of raping him in a secluded area in Hampshire County on June 3, 2010, while transporting him from Grant Memorial Hospital in Petersburg to the Potomac Highlands Regional Jail in Augusta following an arrest for DUI of a controlled substance. According to the suit, Cooper pulled over to a gravel lot along U.S. 50, asked Riggleman to exit the cruiser to provide a urine sample and a short time later forced him to perform oral sex on him.

Also, Riggleman alleges Dixon forcefully sodomized him before putting him back into the cruiser and onto the regional jail. The charge was later dismissed after Riggleman lodged a complaint against Dixon with the State Police who, aided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, found Riggleman's story credible, and later charged Dixon with two counts of second degree sexual assault.

Though Dixon was fired from the Department in October 2010 after being placed on paid administrative leave, a jury on July 13, 2011 acquitted him on both charges.

In addition to ones for civil rights violations, assault and battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress against Dixon, Riggleman made one for negligent hiring, retention, investigation and discipline against Puffenbarger who hired Dixon in 2006.
It must be nice to be able to settle a case with someone else's money.
