Jose Ovalle DA reject memo
When Jose Ovalle realized that a bloodied inmate’s shirt from a jail brawl had gone missing, he came up with a solution for the missing evidence. He poured taco sauce on a similar shirt and took a photo of it, which was booked into evidence, according to law enforcement and court records. The Sheriff’s Department decided at first to fire Ovalle but later agreed to a settlement in which he admitted to his conduct and kept his job while.
