County supervisor blasts attorneys over sheriff investigation secrecy

Abby Sewell (Los Angeles Times) | March 4, 2014

A Los Angeles County supervisor blasted her government attorneys Tuesday for not allowing her to see reports from internal investigations of deputy-involved shootings and other use-of-force incidents.

Gloria Molina, who has frequently complained about the cost to the county of lawsuits alleging wrongdoing by the Sheriff’s Department, said board members aren’t getting information needed to decide whether taxpayers should pay to represent deputies in court.

Molina wants other board members to support her request for Sheriff’s Department investigation records related to a September 2013 deputy-involved shooting in East Los Angeles. One of the deputies connected to the incident had been involved in six prior shootings. Molina is pressing the board to declare it needs access to such reports to perform its duty to monitor the Sheriff’s Department.

“If you look at these claims and the multimillions of dollars that are taking away from other services of taxpayer funds, it is unbelievable that I have a set of lawyers that will not advocate on my behalf,” she said.
