Deputy Under Investigation for Soliciting Sex from Domestic Violence Victim

The Los Angeles Times recently reported that a deputy sheriff is under investigation for soliciting sex from a victim of domestic violence.  While this sort of thing probably occurs in any law enforcement agency, it’s remarkable that it continues to occur to this degree 3-4 years after Sheriff Jim McDonnell assured the public he would clean it up.

Perhaps one reason why it continues is that Sheriff McDonnell is not viewed as a leader; he has never earned the confidence of those he assumes he leads.  Deputies view him with a mixture of scorn and contempt; the public hardly knows who he is.  So it’s no wonder staggering misconduct continues–in this case, in a sheriff station lobby!
