A jury today found six current and former members of the LA Sheriff’s Department guilty of obstruction of justice and other charges. It’s a result of an ongoing federal investigation of LA jails. Prosecutors made the case that these deputies, sergeants and lieutenants took part in an alleged scheme to stymie a federal grand jury investigation into civil rights abuses and corruption. Celeste Fremon has been covering the case, she’s a journalist who specializes in criminal justice and she writes the Witness LA Blog.
