Former SDPD officer pleads no contest in ticket fixing case

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A former San Diego Police sergeant has admitted to his role in a ticket-fixing scandal involving a San Diego county deputy district attorney.

Court records show Kevin Friedman, 48, quietly pleaded no contest in May to a misdemeanor count of destroying a traffic citation.

The veteran officer resigned in February after he and prosecutor Allison Worden-Debow, 37, were charged with misdemeanor counts of conspiracy to obstruct justice and destruction of a traffic citation.

The obstruction of justice count was dropped as part of Friedman's plea deal. He was sentenced to complete 40 hours of community service work and two years of probation; and pay a $500 fine, court records show.

The complaint – filed in January 2012 – alleged Friedman destroyed a seat belt ticket given to Deputy District Attorney Worden-Debow in May of 2011.

Worden-Debow has pleaded not guilty. She has a trial date set for December and remains on paid leave from the DA's office.
