WENATCHEE — A Wenatchee attorney who acknowledged that he was not experienced enough to defend a man convicted in the 1994-95 Wenatchee sex-abuse investigation has agreed to pay $2.9 million to his former client, who spent nearly five years behind bars before the charges were dismissed. Manuel Hidalgo Rodriguez, who filed the suit, signed the settlement agreement on May 7. His former defense attorney, Ed Stevensen, signed it on April 28. The settlement is now awaiting approval by a judge.
