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

John Sanchez DA reject memo

A lieu­ten­ant ordered John Sanc­hez to go back to a judge to ob­tain ap­prov­al to ex­ecute a search war­rant at night. In­stead, the deputy doctored a doc­u­ment that already had the judge’s sig­na­ture, ac­cord­ing to a dis­trict at­tor­ney’s memo. Sanc­hez was sus­pen­ded for false state­ments and false in­form­a­tion in re­cords, ac­cord­ing to sher­iff’s re­cords.
