Ex-Irwindale cop sentenced to 9 years in prison for sexually assaulting woman during traffic stop

A former Irwindale police officer was sentenced Monday to nine years in prison for sexually assaulting a woman during a routine traffic stop in 2012.

David Paul Fraijo, 37, was arrested in March after prosecutors said he stopped a female driver in October  2012 and asked to see her driver’s license. After she told him she didn’t have a license, prosecutors said Fraijo ordered the woman to park on a nearby street, where he sexually assaulted her.

He pleaded no contest in October to oral copulation under color of authority and sexual battery by restraint. Fraijo was also ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

After sentencing, Fraijo was taken into custody, according to the LosAngeles County district attorney’s office.
