King County to pay $3.5 million to settle suit alleging deputies left teen at massage parlor, where she was forced into prostitution decades ago

The Seattle Times says King County has agreed to pay $3.5 million to settle the lawsuit of a 45-year-old woman who claims that when she was a teenage runaway 28 years ago, sheriff’s deputies left her at a Federal Way massage parlor where she was forced into prostitution.

Under the settlement terms, the woman — who has asked to be identified only by her initials, M.T. — has agreed to drop her case and any other potential claims against the county and its employees, while the county admitted no wrongdoing.

But decades-old police reports written by an undercover detective as part of a prostitution sting operation proved key in corroborating the woman’s claims and led to the favorable settlement, said her attorney, Lincoln Beauregard.
