David Chang, Kris Cordova and Anthony Pimentel attacked inmate Alejandro Franco on Nov. 5, 2007, according to court records. The deputies used pepper spray on Franco’s genitals and anus.

The deputies sued Los Angeles County for indemnification, claiming that their actions arose from their employment.
