Documents detail misconduct by L.A. sheriff’s deputies

Jimmie Pate DA reject memo

Jim­mie Pate com­plied when a ser­geant re­ques­ted to be writ­ten out of a 2001 ar­rest re­port about a couple caught smoking marijuana, ac­cord­ing to a dis­trict at­tor­ney’s memo. Pro­sec­utors de­nounced it as “an un­seasoned deputy’s fail­ure to stand up to the im­prop­er de­mands of his su­per­visor.” Pate was sus­pen­ded 10 days, dis­cip­lin­ary re­cords show.
