Cop Allegedly Sexually Assaults Woman, Then Arrests Her For Protesting (InformationLiberation)
Via 8 News Now/BCND:
LAS VEGAS -- Clark County taxpayers may have to pay settlement money to a sexual assault victim and the family court marshal accused of assaulting her.

The I-Team broke the story of a wide-ranging investigation into family court abuse last month. Marshal Ron Fox was fired for sexually assaulting a woman in court and arresting her when she spoke up about it.

The video the I-Team uncovered is spurring outrage with viewers and shaking up the court. But the marshal that internal affairs called a liar may still get a taxpayer funded payday. The I-Team uncovered video of marshal Ron Fox arresting Monica Contreras. She was in court for a protection order hearing.

Internal affairs documents reviewed by the I-Team conclude Fox took Contreras to a side room and inappropriately searched her. When Contreras told the hearing master, Fox arrested her for making a "false allegation against a police officer." There is no Nevada law supporting the stated reason for that arrest.
