Johnny Poland if you are reading, we invite you to tell you side of the story on SLTPD WATCH. We have heard good and bad. Some people think Mr. Poland was guilty and a sinner. Other have said Mr. Poland was a good cop and SLTPD took him out for retaliation.
The charges do not look good, but we also know Mr. Poland could have been been coerced into a “plea bargin”. Again, the charges do not look good against Poland, n or do the people who were victims of Mr. Poland’s wrongdoings.
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Cal. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) – South Lake Tahoe police officer, Johnny Poland is expected to plea guilty next week to federal charges according to LakeTahoeNews.Net.
Poland was indicted in early 2013 on three counts related to tampering with a witness and one count of obstruction of an official proceeding.
According to court documents, Poland was caught up in a love triangle with a gang member’s girlfriend and he tried to help drug traffickers evade police and throw investigators off their path.
A criminal complaint filed in January says a probe uncovered allegations of Poland’s misconduct dating to October 2003 when he allegedly engaged in sexual activity with a 17-year-old female student while he was a school resource officer at South Lake Tahoe High School.
