Suit Claims Officers Took 'Call Girl' Text

Norma Jean Almodovar, a civilian traffic control officer-turned-prostitute, is seeking $3 million in damages from the City of Los Angeles and three Los Angeles police officers who, she says, confiscated her manuscript, "From Cop to Call Girl."

Almodovar, 34, was convicted of pandering last year and placed on three years' probation for attempting to recruit a traffic officer as a prostitute. The suit, filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, claims the manuscript exposes corruption in the department, "especially the Hollywood Division."
