Different documents depending on which referenced document -referenced complaint we're talking about. that I maintained in my office. Okay. Why did you create this document? Basically, the files

I believe that it was in response to a discovery request, an interrogatory. Do you remember what that interrogatory was asking? Not verbatim, no. Okay. Yes. Do you remember the gist of it? It was essentially asking for any inquiry into any

allegation of dishonesty -- I'm paraphrasing -- on the part of any deputy sheriff at the sheriff's office between certain dates. Okay. What did you do to locate the dishonesty investigations?

I did a hand search through all of the files that I have back to the date in question and a computer search, actually. When you did the computer search, what search terms did you use? I don't remember, but I can tell you some of them. Sure. I'm not going to be able to give you a complete list. Sure. Probably lie, lied, honest to honesty, things like that. Okay. Are the computer files related to these investigations

Looking at the first line that states 2002A22312 reading across the lines, citizen complaint, 10/27/2002, Craig Wilder, Lieutenant Ferry, sergeant and/or deputy lied about call response. Looking at the first number, the 2002A22312, what

kind of a reference number is that? That's a sheriff's office event number, incident number. It's

referred to in different ways, but basically a case report that any deputy would file. For, like, a police report in connection -Correct. -- with the criminal investigation? Yes. Okay. Or not necessarily a criminal investigation. Any time we

respond to any request for assistance, whether it be a civil -any time a deputy writes a report, it gets assigned a number and that would -- that's including criminal investigations. Okay. It states that this was a citizen complaint. Do you

recall who the citizen was? Other than the name there, no. Any by the name there, you are referring to where it says Craig

Who was the deputy that was at issue in that incident,

the 2002A22312? Yeah. Without the paper in front of me, I don't recall.

Going to the line below with the reference number, 2004-011, what type of reference number is that? That is, I believe, just a complaint number. it was generated. I don't know how

We've changed numbering systems throughout

the past 10 years for citizen complaints, for investigations, and that kind of thing. I think that that was -- that's not a

case number as described to you a few minutes ago. Okay. That's an internal tracking number of some kind. recall how that was generated. Okay. The reporting party is Leda Kiendy, K-I-E-N-D-Y. I can't

So she's a civilian as opposed to an employee? Correct. Okay. And what deputy was that investigation about?

Deputy Glenn Slick. Is he still employed with the county? Yes, he is. It states that the allegation is comments by investigator that the subject deputy may not have been honest during an interview. Right. Okay. Do you recall who the investigator was?

As it says on the document there, it's Lieutenant Edge. Do you know what the statement was that the deputy was

alleged to have been dishonest about? One of the acts that he was alleged to have committed, the investigator surmised that either he was lying when he said that he didn't commit it, or that he simply honestly didn't

I believe that it was touching the

breast of Ms. Ethridge, if I remember correctly, in public. Okay. Do you know if that was ever reported to the prosecuting

attorney's office? I -- I don't recall. Okay. Moving down to the line below with the reference number It states an administrative investigation from

2005A21132.

June 2006, with the reporting party being Deputy Taddonio and the investigator being Chief Moyes. The allegation states,

"Investigator stated that circumstantial evidence indicated subject employee lied to a detective during an interview about a criminal case." Which employee is this? Penny Goodman. Okay. What was that investigation about more specifically?

She was alleged to have made some sort of dishonest statement to your client when he was a detective during an interview. Is there a file on that? Yes. There is a file on that.

Do you know what the contents of that file are?

and things like that. Okay. It states as the outcome that there was a procedural

failure which prevented formal discipline. Yes. Are those your words typing, procedural failure prevented formal discipline? That's -- those are my words, yes. Okay. What is that referring to?

The person who investigated that particular case neglected to read Ms. Goodman some of her -- some of the required rights that she had before interviewing her. And therefore, the

decision of the administration at the time was that they were unable to discipline her because of that fact. Do you know who made that decision of the administration? Yes. I believe that it was undersheriff -- former Undersheriff

Cary James. Okay. Looking down to the next line with the reference number

of 2007A03530 states as a citizen complaint with the date of the incident being February 17th, 2007 and the reporting party being Laura Stinson. a report. I don't. Do you recall -- do you recall what the situation was? The allegation is that a deputy falsified

Do you remember which deputy that was referring to?

That's another iteration of our numbering system for administrative investigations. Okay. So is that -- later we see administrative investigations That's the new way and the old way

with an AI number starting. is OPS? Correct.

So going across that line with the date of incident being March 18th of 2009 and you being the reporting party, which deputy is this referring to? Deputy Mark Lann. What is the false statement that he's alleged to have made during an interview? I don't recall the specific statement in that investigation. What led him to be interviewed in the first place? He was the subject of that investigation. So in other words,

he was the one that was accused of misconduct. And you don't recall what the initial misconduct was?

I believe that that was the investigation in which he

allegedly failed to document additional items that were stolen during a burglary after a victim called him to report those items missing. But I'm not positive of that.

Do you recall why it states, going across the line, that the allegation was not sustained? Do you recall who made that

decision to not sustain that allegation? That probably would have been Sheriff Elfo. Okay. Going down to the next line with the reference number

OPS 2009-009, this is an administrative investigation from March 23rd, 2009 with you as the reporting party and you as the investigator. It states that the allegation, again, is that the deputy made a false statement during the interview. deputy this referred to? The same deputy, Deputy Mark Lann. Okay.

at the dates of the incidents, they were about a week apart. So would it be correct if I presumed that the date of incident was the date of his interview? No. No. The date of the incident would be the date that the

actual act of misconduct allegedly occurred. Okay. was? As I mentioned, that's the fifth in the series of five. them in very short order. Do you -- if you're thinking -Yeah. Okay. I can't remember that one specifically. Do you recall if you recommended any of those I did Do you know what the OPS 2009-009 underlying misconduct

allegations to be sustained? It's not my place as the investigator to recommend whether an allegation should be sustained or not. Have you ever made a recommendation to sustain an allegation? I think when I was new to the job, I may have during some early investigations. But we kind of redesigned the way that we did

internal investigations and kind of looked at whose role it was to do certain parts of the process. I determined that given the fact that I was doing the investigations themselves and it was my job to gather the facts and the circumstances surrounding those and document that, that

OPS 2009-014, it states that this is administrative investigation from November 28, 2009 with Inspector Cooley, you, as the reporting party and Inspector Cooley, you, as investigator. The allegation states, "Reserve deputy made

false statements during interview." Do you recall who that reserve deputy was? Yes. Reserve Deputy Cody Chambers.

And is Cody Chambers still a reserve deputy? I believe so, yes. Do you know what he was interviewed in connection with? Yes. I don't remember all of the specifics, but I can

summarize for you, if that's what you would like. Yeah. That would be great. When we

There was an issue with signing a ride-along waiver.

have a civilian ride-along with us, they -- we require them to sign a waiver of liability, basically, in case they get hurt or killed while they're riding-along with us. Again, I don't remember the details, but basically that form did not get signed. And somehow we found out that it got

signed after the fact instead of before the ride-along.

unfounded. Correct. Who made that determination? I don't know if it was Undersheriff Parks or Sheriff Elfo that finally, as I recall seeing -- it left a final letter from

I didn't really have any way of

verifying which was true, and so I simply documented it that way in the investigation. And Moyes reiterated at the beginning of our talk when we came to see me, that he believed that Mede had lied and that
