Convicted rapist settles with county
LOS ANGELES -- A man once accused of raping a Burbank woman and
later convicted of three similar crimes, has settled a lawsuit
against Los Angeles County in which he claimed he was assaulted by
inmates while in custody.
County officials agreed to pay 43-year-old Daniel Zabuski $17,500
to settle a claim from an alleged assault that occurred in 2001,
according to published reports. Zabuski was convicted of raping three
women in Canoga Park and sentenced in August to 80 years to life in
state prison. The convictions were Zabuski’s third strike.
Zabuski was arrested by Burbank Police in April of 2000 after a
woman he met on the Internet claimed he assaulted her, but a jury
deadlocked in that case.
