Former LA County Sheriff Lee Baca To Be Retried On Obstruction of Justice Charges

Former Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca leaves federal court in Los Angeles, near the end of his December 2016 trial of charges of obstruction and conspiracy. A mis-trial was declared. Baca will be retried.

Federal prosecutors say they will try again to convince a jury that Baca was responsible for a wide-ranging conspiracy to cover up reports of prisoner abuse and thwart investigators.
