Pennsylvania has paid nearly $8 million to settle more than a dozen sexual harassment and misconduct lawsuits against Pennsylvania State Police troopers since 2001, with at least four more pending cases which could result in additional taxpayer-funded payouts. The allegations that resulted in settlements have included physical assault and battery, sexual discrimination and retaliation, and one instance of a rape allegation.

The plaintiffs in those settlements include female state police employees across many ranks, including a clerk, troopers, a sergeant, a vice corporal and a lieutenant colonel. The state police did not admit to wrongdoing in any of the cases. The terms of the agreements prevent both the state police and the accusers from speaking publicly about their cases. Payments generally ranged from $5,000 to $435,000. But the agency also paid $6.3 million between 2001 and 2004 to settle claims against a single trooper, Michael K. Evans, who was convicted of numerous sex crimes.
