Anchorage Pays $5.5M to Women Raped by Cop

The Municipality of Anchorage, Alaska will pay more than $5.5 million to 11 women who claimed they were sexually assaulted by a police officer now serving 87 years in prison for rape, Mayor Dan Sullivan’s office announced Tuesday.

The settlement ends the lawsuits against the city, but some of the victims plan to continue separate civil actions against former office Anthony Rollins.

The individual settlements range in size from $1.7 million for one woman down to $75,000.
