In Sacramento, California a police officer — Brandon Mullock — is being investigated regarding his conduct, and last Friday at least 79 individuals were informed that the DUI they received from him will be thrown out due to officer error. It is believed that Officer Mullock falsified at least one piece of evidence which has, ultimately, compromised his credibility.
Sacramento Court District Attorney Jan Scully opened an investigation into Officer Brandon Mullock’s conduct after a deputy district attorney was reviewing dashcam footage for a trial and noticed inconsistencies in what Officer Mullock stated and what appeared in the video. According to Jan Scully’s office, there have been “wild inaccuracies” in Officer Mullock’s field interviews and gathering of evidence.
In California, being charged with a DUI is a serious crime and should be avoided at all costs. And, when an officer of the law tampers with evidence, thus turning the odds against you, it makes the predicament even worse.
