There were two stories in the LA Times today about sexual misconduct involving cops in the San Fernando Valley’s Devonshire division. In one case, two cops were nailed for getting blowjobs from strippers while on-duty and, in another, a veteran officer was arrested for molesting boys in a youth program.
In the first case, the wife of one of the cops wrangled a notorized confession from him that she later turned in to authorities after her husband beat her up.
"This case is unusual on multiple levels," said Deputy Chief Michael Berkow, head of the Professional Standards Bureau, which includes Internal Affairs. "It is unusual for officers to commit on-duty sexual misconduct. But even more unusual when a wife has her husband confess to sexual misconduct, has it notarized, keeps it an extensive time and then turns it over to us."
