The LAPD and the LAUSD captain lied to the plaintiff and prosecutors

CBS, LAPD captain led cover-up of sexual assault report against Moonves, AG says A Los Angeles police captain whose sexual assault of a woman was covered up by an investigator and prosecutors, a former top prosecutor says.

The woman, identified as a former high school classmate, says she endured repeated rape and sexual assaults by the captain while he was the school’s tennis coach.

The woman, identified as a former high school classmate, says she endured repeated rape and sexual assaults by the captain while he was the school’s tennis coach. The captain took the case to an outside law firm, which hired him. But he and his investigator lied to the plaintiff and prosecutors.

A former top L.A. County prosecutor and a former FBI agent say that when they looked into the allegations against Moonves and the LAPD, they concluded that there was no reason to investigate.

In addition, they concluded that the female plaintiff’s account was false.

The case started in 2014 when the plaintiff, identified as a former high school classmate and the captain’s patient and friend, sued the captain and the LAUSD for allegedly failing to protect her from a sexual assault by Moonves.

The captain’s lawyer in the case, Peter Iannuzzi, said he was never contacted by the LAPD about the case.

“This is someone that is an excellent legal attorney who is known as one of the premier defense lawyers in Southern California,” he said. “He’s well-respected and known in the community and he was contacted by one of the plaintiffs who thought he was representing her and that’s how this whole mess got rolling.”

When the woman, identified as Monica Macapagal, reached out to Iannuzzi to file her complaint, he immediately took it on because he believed she had a strong case.

But within weeks, Iannuzzi learned that the captain had been retained by another attorney who he felt could help him in the case. The woman then filed a complaint with the Police Commission, which oversees the department’s internal affairs division, against the captain and the LAPD for covering up the captain’s alleged misconduct and lying to her and to the police’s internal affairs investigative team.

The Police Commission referred the matter to the Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division. That department told the commission that it was unable to find any evidence of a cover-up.
