City of San Antonio Plans to Pay Settlement to Woman After Detective Searched Her Vagina in Middle

City of San Antonio Plans to Pay Settlement to Woman After Detective Searched Her Vagina in Middle of the Street


The city of San Antonio wants to make a $205,000 payout to a woman who sued in federal court, alleging that an SAPD detective pulled down her shorts in public and inappropriately searched her vagina for drugs.

City council is scheduled to vote Thursday whether to fund the settlement via the city's Self-Insurance Liability Fund, according to an agenda posted online.

The lawsuit, filed last year by Natalie D. Simms, alleges now-retired SAPD Detective Mara Wilson conducted an illegal vaginal cavity search on Simms after she was approached by officers while she sat on a curb waiting for her boyfriend.

2. I'm wondering if it might be a typo and the settlement is for $250,000.

I believe that there was a tort law enacted about fifteen years ago that limited municipal settlements to $250,000.
