SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego county woman who was sexually assaulted by her husband won't have to pay $25,000 to his divorce attorney.
Two years ago, a judge ordered Crystal Harris of Carlsbad to pay the additional bill after she'd already agreed to pay $47,000 of her husband's divorce fees.
But U-T San Diego says another judge ruled last week it would be unjust to force Harris to pay the additional fee.
Harris's husband, Eduardo Contreras, is serving six years in prison for sexually assaulting her. A new state law inspired by her divorce takes effect in January. It bars judges from ordering spousal abuse victims to pay support after divorce.
