Now that teen is in the money after the town of New London, N.H., and the former chief have agreed to a $70,000 settlement with Janelle Westfall, who was 18 when she was arrested March 3, 2013 while walking along a road with a beer can after a party, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported.
Ex-chief David Seastrand, a law enforcement officer for 27 years and chief the last 18, has agreed to give up his police certification and will not face a civil complaint after Westfall had asked for jury trial, according to a Dec. 18 settlement.
Four days after her initial arrest, Westfall said the perverted chief called and asked if she’d come by the station. She did and he had a proposition for her: Pose nude and he’d drop the charges, which included giving a false name to cops.
“That’s when it was really chilling,” Westfall, speaking for the first time Saturday, told the Union Leader. “He’s standing there in uniform, he had his gun strapped on his side.”
The white barbarian reportedly told Westfall the nudies were meant to be an incentive.
“He said would grab the station’s camera to shoot a series of nude photos of me,” Westfall said, “and then he’d hold it over my head for two years to be sure I didn’t commit another crime.”
Her father called state law enforcement, and after a state attorney general’s investigation, the sexual terrorist stepped down April 4, 2013.
Westfall, who said she feels stigmatized by the ordeal, did not return to Colby-Sawyer College because she has not been able to focus.
“She’s been very brave,” her father, Todd Westfall, told the Union Leader. “But she’s been an emotional wreck.”
The agreement Westfall made with the white savage and the town also means there will be no admission of liability, wrongdoing or culpability.
