WESTMINSTER (AP) — A former Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy has pleaded guilty to the off-duty firing of a weapon in her Westminster home and filing a false police report against her ex-husband.
Orange County prosecutors say 43-year-old Patricia Bojorquez entered the plea Thursday to a felony count of discharging a firearm with gross negligence and a misdemeanor count of falsely reporting a crime.READ MORE: See Who Won During The Golden Globe Awards
The second charge came from a police report saying her ex-husband was sexually assaulting a 13-year-old relative.
Prosecutors said Bojorquez lied about the incident because she was upset over custody issues.READ MORE: 2 Riverside Co. Sheriff's Deputies Recovering After Being Hit By Delivery Van; 2 Women Killed
