Report: problem deputies sent to work at LA jails
Report: Deputies allowed to remain at LA jails after being found guilty of misconduct
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' A report finds Los Angeles sheriff's officials routinely transferred problem deputies to the county jail as a way of keeping them from the public.

A Sunday story in the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/sgNnWS ) says some deputies were allowed to remain working in the county's lockups after being convicted of crimes or found guilty of serious misconduct.

Documents obtained by the Times show that among those sent to work in the jails was a deputy accused of fraud, loan sharking and threatening to kill somebody. Another deputy beat a firefighter bloody and unconscious during an off-duty incident.

The background and conduct of deputies have come under increased scrutiny as federal investigators probe misconduct and brutality against inmates in the nation's largest jail network.
