SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - A northern California politician convicted of attempting to peek into a neighbor’s window in 2013 wants the woman who filed a lawsuit over the incident to be publicly identified.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1HfxlfN) the woman filed a lawsuit seeking $2.5 million in damages from Sonoma County Supervisor Efren Carrillo, saying he showed up half-naked outside her apartment to sexually assault her.

A jury acquitted Carrillo of misdemeanor peaking, but convicted him of attempted peeking.

Carrillo and his attorneys say the woman shouldn’t be allowed to remain anonymous because she’s seeking damages and hasn’t proven that Carrillo wanted to harm her.

A trial has been set for Sept. 16, delayed from Tuesday partly to give both sides an opportunity to settle.



Attorney Rachael Erickson is representing the woman and says Carrillo wants to pressure her client into settling.
