Crooked cop let killer get sex, drugs and phones in jail


The girlfriend of a killer once housed inside the Orange County, California Jail testified Wednesday that a friendly sheriff’s deputy twice secretly tipped her to potential searches so she wouldn’t be caught smuggling contraband including drugs and weapons inside the facility. Prosecutor Aleta Bryant elicited the testimony from Ha Duc Nguyen who is hoping her statements in support of the government’s bribery case against now fired deputy David Lloyd Cass will result in her lenient punishment for the illegal, two-year smuggling operation.
Nguyen told the jury that on December 3, 2011–the day she was planning to smuggle marijuana, candy and a cell phone (plus charger and cord) to killer Stephenson Choi Kim–Cass contacted her with a warning. More over at the OC Weekly.
