'Ticket fixing' case against SDPD cop turned over to AG's office

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The case against a San Diego Police traffic sergeant implicated in a so-called "ticket fixing" scandal has been turned over the California Attorney General's office.

Sergeant Kevin Friedman is accused of tearing up traffic tickets written against employees of the San Diego County District Attorney's office.

Nicholas Pacilio, spokesperson for the Attorney General, confirmed Friday that state prosecutors have accepted the case for review.

Pacilio said the AG's office will decide whether criminal charges are warranted.

Sgt. Friedman remains on administrative duty pending the outcome of the case, according to SDPD spokesperson, Lt. Andra Brown.

District Attorney spokesperson, Steve Walker, said the case files will be forwarded to the AG next week.

A law enforcement source told News 8 that San Diego Police patrol officers issued the tickets, which Sgt. Friedman is accused of shredding as a favor to the DA employees.

The DA employees have not been identified.
