The Los Angeles Times just learned that a veteran San Diego police department sergeant being investigated regarding claims he “fixed” traffic tickets for members of the San Diego County district attorney’s office. That county office employs lawyers, clerks, secretaries, investigators and others.
San Diego’s Police Department declined Friday to release his name or details about the investigation, citing privacy rules concerning personnel issues.
SDPD regularly faced scandals this year for officer misconduct. Yesterday’s San Diego Superior Court judge delayed the sentencing of a former officer convicted of demanding sexual favors from women stopped for DUI / drunk driving. This new story could get interesting.
