Well, what's a dedicated 'family' lawyer to do when the Dirty DUI squad is on hiatus? Nasty business, that -- requires an remarkable degree of, shall we say, moral flexibility.

Crazy hope thew cops do jail time. Cops and officers of the court should be held to a higher standard.

HOPE THE MOM AND DAD CAN FIND SOME COMMON GROUND. HOPE THE MOM KNOWS SHE MAY HAVE JUST RUINED TWO CAREERS AND THAT SHE IS ONLY HURTING HER CHILDREN. I WONDER IF THE WIFE HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE DRUG CHARGE. I BET IT WAS A SETUP LIKE THE DUI SETUPS THAT HAPPENED IN OUR COUNTY A FEW MONTHS BACK?

NONE THE LESS WE SHOULD PRAY FOR A QUICK RESOLUTION FOR ALL PARTIES.

Did you read/hear the part about two officers conspiring together with the family law attorney, ex wife and her husband? Yes that is a crime, yes it is conspiracy to commit a crime....and YES conspiracy is a felony!

Filthy business. This sort of thing is so deeply damaging to law enforcement integrity that these clowns need to be given the stiffest possible criminal sentence, and the civil piece needs to go to Juryland so they lose everything that they have.

Nobody - and ESPECIALLY law enforcement - has the right to do this sort of thing.

Incidentally, this is probably filed federally as a "Section 1983" suit, which is what you do pursue as a violation under the color of authority. It is a direct hit against the Constitution to deprive a person of their fundamental rights to due process as well as privacy, and these guys deserve to be de-nuded of their assets - I just wish the U.S. Attorney would also take a look at it for federal criminal violations as well.

There's a rose garden in Lompoc that always needs attention, and a couple of years of gardening at 72 cents per hour would be a good sentence for these crimes.
