Default L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca convicted..

Anyone surprised?

Quote:
LOS ANGELES — Former Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca was convicted Wednesday of obstructing an FBI investigation into corrupt and violent guards who took bribes to smuggle contraband into the jails he ran and savagely beat inmates.

The trial, the second Baca faced after a jury last year deadlocked 11-1 in favor of acquittal on obstruction charges, cast a dark shadow over a distinguished 50-year law enforcement career that abruptly ended with his resignation in 2014 as the corruption investigation spread from rank-and-file deputies to his inner circle.

Not surprising, but frustrating that it took 6 years and will likely be several more before he sees the inside of a prison, if he ever does at all.

Nope. Dealt with Baca and his regulations and his corrupt staff for 3 months in 2011/early 2012. That was 3 months too many, and I'm just glad nothing ever happened to Dee. There was a lot of corruption in the jail staff of LASD at that time and I personally was aware of some of the power plays involved. Sick.

And here's the 'excuse' if he doesn't end up on the inside:
