Sex-assault suit against ex-Modesto cop dismissed

A judge has dismissed a woman’s lawsuit against a former Modesto police officer, who she alleged sexually assaulted her in a North Ninth Street motel room in January 2012. U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill said he dismissed the case Nov. 26 because Sheri Newton repeatedly failed to follow court orders, including those requiring her to appear in court after her attorney left the case this year and Newton began representing herself in the matter.
