Oakland County prosecutors have dropped 16 drug cases in recent months — including one involving a large-scale marijuana bust — after an investigation determined a deputy on the county’s narcotics enforcement team falsified a search warrant and lied under oath.
County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper said she learned in September that Marc Ferguson, now fired, opened a shipping container at YRC Freight in Pontiac without a search warrant in June 2011. He discovered 78 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $300,000.
He has been fired, however I think that was more because of the fact his actions and getting caught compromised hundreds of cases. No word on him being charged for violating peoples rights, and more importantly though as usual:
I’m reasonably sure he will get his job back, Officer Roid Rage did.
State Sponsored Criminal #510: Marc Ferguson
Because when you violate someone’s rights being held accountable becomes a relative term when you’re a cop.
