L.A. Sheriff’s deputy who lied about whether he tried to photograph under woman’s skirt should keep his job, commission decided
The Los Angeles County Civil Service Commission rejected an attempt by the Sheriff’s Department to fire a deputy who initially lied about whether he had tried to take a photograph from under a woman’s skirt while on-duty at the Alhambra Courthouse. The commission reinstated Deputy Steven Stroble, concluding that he did not actually take the photo, that he owned up to the lies and that other employees have kept their jobs despite making false statements. A judge later overturned the decision. Stroble is appealing.
