A couple of months ago I blogged on the story coming out of Contra Costa County involving a private investigator using his cop buddies to set up the husbands of his clients in divorce cases. The investigator would tempt the men with attractive young women then send in the cops to bust the guys for driving under the influence. It appears as though one of the officers accused in this scandal may have to face additional federal charges. He has already pled not guilty to two counts of extortion, one count of aiding and abetting extortion, and one count of conspiracy to commit extortion. According to the US attorney handling the case additional unspecified criminal charges will be charged on March 20. Of course, it is important for us all to recognize that the officer is innocent until proven guilty. What this case does is cast additional doubt on the “Guilty Myth” of DUI law, the myth that cops never lie and everyone charged with driving under the influence must be guilty. If you have been arrested for DUI in the San Francisco Bay area it is so important that you hire an experienced DUI attorney to make sure that you are not being railroaded.
