Salinas City Council reached a $110,000 settlement on Tuesday with a teenage girl who alleged she was repeatedly sexually assaulted by a former adviser in the Salinas Police Department’s Explorer Program.
The girl, who was 13 at the time of the alleged assaults, participated in the after-school program, and is identified only as M.R. in city papers.
The city of Salinas does not admit guilt in either settlement agreement.
The Explorer program, supported by the Boys Scouts and the Salinas Police Activities League, is still in operation.
