OAKLAND / Officer charged with illegal stops / Police say he pulled over Asian women, came on to them
sfgate.com, 28 Aug 2005 [cached]
Officer Richard Valerga, 51, was charged Wednesday with seven misdemeanor counts, including two of false imprisonment and five of interference of civil rights, authorities said Friday.It was not yet clear when he would appear in court.
The charges stem from traffic stops on five women made between January and April, police said.Police would not reveal the exact location or date of each stop.
Valerga worked as a swing-shift patrol officer in the neighborhood just east of Lake Merritt and also worked on a beat in the Redwood Heights, Laurel and Dimond neighborhoods along MacArthur Boulevard between Fruitvale Avenue and High Street.
Valerga, who joined the department in 1999, has been on administrative leave since May, when accusers began coming forward.The allegations were jointly investigated by police and the Alameda County district attorney's office.
...
Police said Valerga would pull over the victims, attractive Asian women ranging from teenagers to women in their 40s, on a pretext -- and then come on to them.He is charged with one count of interference related to each woman.The two false-imprisonment charges stem from allegations by two women that when they asked Valerga to let them go, he refused, authorities said.
Valerga, who joined the department after serving in the U.S. Navy, will remain on administrative leave for the duration of the criminal and administrative investigation.The department may try to fire him as the criminal case progresses, police said.
Police said some of the victims had been tracked down by investigators who found that their license plates and driver's license information were run on the computer in Valerga's patrol car.Valerga may have victimized more women whom police could not locate, authorities said.
OAKLAND / Ex-officer sentenced to jail in gropings
www.sfgate.com, 10 Jan 2006 [cached]
Richard Valerga, 51, resigned from the force before pleading no contest in November to four misdemeanors, including two charges of violating the civil rights of his victims -- all of whom were immigrants -- and two counts of false imprisonment.
Investigators said Valerga stopped the women for no apparent reason between January and April 2005.He photographed the women, asked each for her phone number and kissed one of them.He refused to let two of them get out of his squad car after they asked to leave, police said.
One victim came forward in May, and police soon identified other victims who said they, too, had been accosted.Investigators linked the victims to Valerga after discovering that their license plate numbers and driver's license information had been checked on the computer in his patrol car.
On Monday, Alameda County Superior Court Judge Morris Beatus ordered Valerga to begin serving his sentence Jan. 23.
...
Valerga, who was in the Navy before his six years on the Oakland force, did not address the court and declined comment after the hearing.
Beatus also ordered Valerga to receive counseling and attend a program addressing sexual harassment and abusive behavior.He also placed the former officer on three years' probation and ordered him not to use a weapon during that time.
...
Valerga hoped to return to a former job at Motel 6 and receive counseling, said his attorney, who also said a stint in jail could jeopardize Valerga's safety.
...
Valerga had worked as a swing-shift patrol officer in the neighborhood just east of Lake Merritt and also worked on a beat in the Redwood Heights, Laurel and Dimond neighborhoods on MacArthur Boulevard between Fruitvale Avenue and High Street.
"Mr. Valerga is most certainly sorry for this conduct and this behavior," Brennan said.
...
Deputy District Attorney Mark McCannon said that although Valerga wasn't charged with any sexual crimes, "I believe these offenses were sexual in nature.
...
It appears Mr. Valerga has a fixation on Asian women."
The prosecutor said he didn't believe Valerga had shown any remorse, citing statements he reportedly made saying "these events were a misunderstanding."
