|Happier times...with Sheriff Lee Baca here in Cerritos (at Chipolte for GOD SAKES!) eons ago.|
In a downtown Los Angeles courtroom today, Lee Baca admitted to lying twice about his involvement in hiding a jail inmate from FBI investigators.
I have reported on Lee Baca since 1981 when I was the City Editor of the Norwalk Herald American Newspaper and he was working as the Watch Commander over on Civic Center Drive and Manuel Salinas Avenue.
I consider Lee Baca to be a wonderful friend of mine.
So today I find myself in sort of a news fog.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that..... "Baca also admitted that he lied when he said that he was unaware that his subordinates planned to approach an FBI special agent at her home. Baca directed the subordinates to approach the agent, stating that they should "do everything but put handcuffs" on her, the agreement said.
