The money shot for why this one made the count quite simply speaks for itself.
The complaint alleges that Pierce used his position as a police officer to influence one of the witness’s probation officers to perform little or no supervision of him and informed him that he could “work off” his heroin possession charge by cooperating with Pierce. The complaint goes on to allege that Pierce informed the cooperating witnesses about ongoing police investigations, including where best to purchase narcotics and which drug houses to stay away from, so that they would not be caught in the act of buying.
Nice huh? Wonder what would happen to any of the rest of us how behaved like that and didn’t have a badge.
