Sheriff Baca Denies Role In Donor Dispute

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A report says Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca told detectives to launch a criminal investigation against a tenant of one of his well-connected supporters and contributors.

Investigators Say Dispute Civil, Not Criminal: KNX 1070’s Pete Demetriou Reports

A story the Los Angeles Times posted on its website Sunday said the department’s investigation targeted a man who was in a Beverly Hills rental dispute with longtime Baca donor Ezat Delijani (dell-ih-JAH’-nee).

The Times says the investigation was outside Baca’s jurisdiction and Beverly Hills police had already concluded there was no crime involved.

The story says the sheriff sent a handwritten note to his chief of detectives requesting the probe and detectives gave it a special “rush” status normally reserved for serious crimes.

Baca told the Times he had little personal involvement in the probe and Delijani received no special treatment.

    Sheriff Baca is the sheriff for Los Angeles county, and the last time I checked Beverly Hills is still part of LA County! Instead of stories like this, there should be more coverage on illegal immigrants and all the crack heads having babies exhausting our medical and welfare.

Scandal, See, Mike Amiri, he is a BADDBOY in the meaning he is smarter than this Sheriff ass. Not even the LASD could see their wrongs to convict the Officials of BELL,CA. before Mr. Mike Amiri dropped the note to the Attorney General …. on the Media is reporting about this New Hollywood Baddboy Filmmaker. He is the proud owner of BADDBOYFILMS. Honor thy filmmaker. Thanks to Mike H. Amiri, we can all rest another night in peace. I am Mrs. Rodner I own a Adult Video & Toy Store in Hollywood, Ca.
