CHICAGO (AP) - The city of Chicago is expected to approve a $415,000 settlement with a woman who says she was sexually assaulted in 2011 by two on-duty police officers.

Her federal lawsuit follows a criminal case in which initial charges of sexual assault were dropped as part of a deal with prosecutors. The former officers, Juan Vasquez and Paul Clavijo, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of official misconduct.

An attorney for one of the officers has maintained that the sex was consensual.

Prosecutors say the officers found the woman intoxicated and crying near a North Side transit station and offered her a ride home.

They say she was sexually assaulted in the car and at her apartment.

The City Council Finance Committee is expected to approve the settlement Tuesday.
