Former Calif. Deputy Who Smuggled Heroin Burrito Sentenced

June 28, 2012  | 

A former Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy who was believed to be trying to smuggle heroin, stuffed inside a burrito, into a courthouse jail was sentenced Monday to two years in jail.

Henry Marin, once featured on a reality television show focusing on prospective sheriff's recruits, said nothing as a courtroom deputy handcuffed him and led him away to the type of cell he was once responsible for guarding.

Marin, 27, was caught in a sting set up by a sheriff's task force that aims to combat smuggling by corrupt deputies and other sheriff's employees who have helped fuel a lucrative drug trade behind bars.

Well, was it still worth it. I still don't understand why these LEO do this kind of crap. We must be missing something in their backgrounds or in the polygraphs.

I would of like to see a 20 or 30 year sentence for this disgrace to law enforcement.
