The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has been assigning deputies who have been disciplined for assorted misconduct to work in county jail as part of their sanctioned punishment, reports the Los Angeles Times.

In one example, Deputy Enrique Munoz's record included allegations of fraud, loan sharking and threatening to kill somebody when he was assigned to work as a jail deputy. For years, the department transferred problem deputies to the system's lockups as a way of keeping them from the public.
