Fingerprinter Fingered in Case of...Fingering?
Perhaps not fingering, per se, but Miguel Martinez Rivera of the LAPD is a "high-ranking fingerprint expert" who "has been charged with sexually assaulting one of his tenants in a South Los Angeles apartment," reports cbs2.com. "Rivera is charged with four felony counts, including assault with the intent to rape. If convicted, faces up to nine years in prison." He is accused of having "accosted the 26-year-old woman earlier this month," and was arrested this Wednesday while at work "at the department's Scientific Investigations Division." Rivera was "released on $175,000 bail and placed on administrative leave." It's been a streak of bad news of late for the finger print experts who work for the LAPD; recently uncovered errors on their part have led to 945 cases coming under review.
