    2 Police officers in San Degio were arrested after it was discovered they have been running/ involved in a major narcotics distribution ring in San Diego.

    Here is the Kicker - they are Married to each other and both work in the same building( or did). Under US Law since they are married, they CAN NOT be forced to testify against each other - called Spousal Privilege. Makes you wonder if they thought of this way back when they started this, or if the law just happens to help them at this moment.

    Can you say plea deal and then divorce? BTW The charges are very very serious.. charges of selling, possessing and transporting drugs, possessing a loaded firearm while under the influence and conspiracy for both. Its unclear as to if the drug dealing / transport was done in police cars or personal cars.

    I'll say this - its azzhats like this that give 95% of cops a bad name.

    Cannot be FORCED to testify against eachother. They could still cut a deal and voluntarily testify against their spouse.


    I guess the pair that deals together, stays together.

    Interesting situation indeed, i would assume they have enough evidence to put them in prison since they arrested them so they may not need to cut a deal with either of them.

    Things could lulzy if the both try to cut a deal to testify against the other.

    If they were arrested that means they have evidence and since it's a husband/wife combo deal something tells me they Already have the evidence for a conviction. Also since their credibility is now suspect there maybe a lot of overturned convictions.
