LOS ANGELES — A former police sergeant who sexually assaulted a woman during a Southern California traffic stop has been sentenced to nine years in prison.

City News Service says 37-year-old ex-Irwindale Officer David Fraijo was sentenced Monday.

Prosecutors say Fraijo stopped the woman in 2012 and later assaulted her in a parking lot.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune says the Los Angeles suburb later paid $400,000 to end the woman's lawsuit.

Fraijo initially was charged with kidnapping and other crimes that carried a potential life sentence but several charges were dropped after he pleaded no contest to two sex crimes last fall.

He also must register as a sex offender for life.
