SSCC #259–Lacey PD

A Lacey police officer is accused of lying under oath in an attempt to get a search warrant.

At least in this case they’re going after the officer with one minor exception.

Prosecutors charged Olivo with False Swearing, which is a gross misdemeanor and punishable with up to just under a year in jail and a $5,000 fine.

You or I lie to a judge and our ass is in jail for perjury and I know the judge wouldn’t hesitate on the maximum punishment.  However a cop lying is considerably worse in the fact they are doing it specifically to infringe on the rights of a law abiding citizen.

State Sponsored Criminal Count 259: Emmanuel Olivo

Because when trying to get a warrant, just make something up.  It’s faster and easier.
