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

William Cordero letter of intent to discipline

While as­signed to Catalina Is­land in 2011, Wil­li­am Cor­d­ero wrote a false re­port that failed to men­tion a ci­vil­ian rid­ing in his patrol vehicle who wit­nessed a crime, ac­cord­ing to a sher­iff’s dis­cip­lin­ary let­ter. Cor­d­ero was sus­pen­ded 15 days. Cor­d­ero has al­leged in a law­suit that he was dis­cip­lined in re­tali­ation for com­plain­ing about a su­per­visor. His suit is pending.
