Judge overturns two counts against Arevalos

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Two counts have been overturned against a former San Diego police officer who is doing time for sexually assaulting several women during traffic stops in the Gaslamp.

Anthony Arevalos wanted a new trial based on handwritten notes by one of the victims that were not turned over to the defense.

Tuesday, a Superior Court judge ruled he was not confident the jury would have convicted Arevalos on those two counts if the notes were presented.

The prosecution has not commented if it will refile those charges.

Arevalos is expected be sentenced on the remaining charges in a "timely manner."
