FBI arrests sheriff’s officials in L.A. County jails probe

Jack Leonard and Robert Faturechi (Los Angeles Times) | December 9, 2013

FBI agents began arresting Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials Monday as part of a wide-ranging investigation into allegations of abuse and misconduct inside the county’s jails, according to sources familiar with the arrests.

At least three people — including a lieutenant, a sergeant and a deputy — were taken into custody as part of a federal obstruction of justice probe into how sheriff’s officials handled an FBI informant at the center of the jail investigation, one source familiar with the probe said.

More than a dozen officials are expected to be arrested, sources said.

The arrests followed grand jury hearings into whether sheriff’s officials hid inmate Anthony Brown from his FBI handlers. At least one witness testified that sheriff’s officials moved the inmate and changed his name in an attempt to hide him from federal agents, and that top officials in the department played a role in the plan, according to another source familiar with the grand jury testimony.

Sheriff’s officials insist they were not hiding Brown from the FBI but protecting him from other deputies.

It is unclear whether Monday’s arrests included deputies accused of using excessive force against inmates.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said the department did not have an immediate response to the arrests. “You have to talk to the FBI,” he said.
