Orange County CA deputies have been caught lying on their police reports in excess of 100 times. They were reporting they were booking evidence, but they were actually not – either destroying it or stealing it or just abandoning it.
Most deputies got off with no charges. Of course.. The worst 2 were fired and plead down to lesser charges of willful omission to perform official duties…and got ‘informal probation’, not one cent of a fine, not one second of community service, to say nothing of actual punishment. (One cop who didn’t deal got felony charges for falsifying)
Well, the worst 2 are now claiming they were never trained it was illegal to falsify their reports. Supposedly this ‘lack of training’ is why they were allowed to plea out to lesser charges.
