God Bless our #GoodPolice but the #BadCops Have 2 Go!

SNOHOMISH COUNTY SHERIFF LIED TO ME: Nowhere has the Legislature indicated that the sheriff's powers and duties are limited to the unincorporated areas of the county. Nor is there any statutory language from which such a limitation might be inferred. We note, in addition, that the sheriff at common law was the chief law enforcement officer of the county, and that the office of sheriff retains its common law powers and duties unless modified by the constitution or statutes. Sheriffs, Police, and Constables § 2 (1987); seeState ex rel. Johnston v. Melton, 192 Wash. 379, 388-89, 73 P.2d 1334 (1937); AGO 51-53 No. 322 at 2. We thus conclude that the sheriff has a general duty to enforce state law in both unincorporated and incorporated areas of the county. "the jurisdiction of the sheriff in law enforcement matters normally extends throughout his county including the incorporated areas thereof." [The sheriff's] authority is county wide. He is not restricted by municipal limits. For better protection and for the enforcement of local ordinance[s] the [[Orig. Op. Page 4]] cities and towns have their police departments or their town marshals. Even the state has its highway patrol. Still the authority of the sheriff with his correlative duty remains.

An Edmonds police officer has been arrested for allegedly having sex on duty with a woman who was in his temporary custody for jaywalking.

Officer Daniel Lavely, 46, was arrested and booked at the Snohomish County Jail on one count of Custodial Sexual Misconduct.  Formal charges are expected to be filed by the Snohomish County Prosecutor's Office.
Everett police were asked to investigate the May 7 incident involving the 28-year-old Seattle woman. They determined there was probable cause that criminal conduct occurred.
Everett police said Lavely released the woman after the jaywalking stop but contacted her again later, put her in his patrol car and drove to a remote location where they had sex.

The woman reported it a few days later, and Lavely was placed on paid leave and his law enforcement authority was suspended.

Lavely has been with the Edmonds Police Department for seven and a half years.  
KING 5's Liza Javier compiled information for this report.

"formal request to have the DOJ-ACLU-FBI consider looking into possible severe Police Misconducts 
out of the ****** Police Department and any other Snohomish County Police Department who may be in question. This would include but not be limited to:

Is being put together at this moment and will be send (hopefully) FedEx to all of you on Monday..

Now... now does everyone see that we do have an issue with PSM in WA State and this must be addressed sooner rather than later! Three out of Snohomish County in the past 2 1/2 years that I had already been reporting.. Two from the EPD alone- how many does 
this make for Snohomish County in less than as many years? 

Time to rip this band aid off and fix this issue before it gets worse... and we all know, it will~

Everett police officer fired for allegedly having sex with teen 

Former cop denies misconduct, appealing his firing

Published: Friday, March 9, 2012, 12:01 a.m.

Investigators believe former officer Brian Nelson, 40, met the teen through the school resource officer program, according to the termination letter obtained by The Herald through public records laws.

Nelson, a 12-year veteran of the department, has denied any misconduct and is appealing his termination.
Nelson and his then-wife were both school resource officers for Everett police. The girl, then 16, was a student at the school where Nelson's wife worked.

His wife apparently was mentoring the teen, who began spending time at the couple's home.

The girl told investigators she was 16 when she and Nelson first had sex, according to the documents. She said the two repeatedly engaged in sexual activity between November 2010 and April 2011.

At the end of August, the teen told a teacher about the relationship. The teacher notified Child Protective Services, in accordance with state law.

According to police documents, the teen told the officer's wife about the allegations in June. The woman confronted Nelson, but did not report the alleged relationship to her supervisors at the police department, records show.

Everett police Sgt. Robert Goetz on Thursday said he was not permitted to say if the woman has been disciplined. She has been assigned to other duties and is no longer working in the school resource officer program, he said.

A criminal investigation was conducted by Snohomish County sheriff's detectives. Prosecutors reviewed the case but declined to file charges. In general, the legal age for consensual sex in Washington is 16.

Everett police also conducted an internal investigation.

Nelson admitted to being alone with the girl on multiple nights but denied any sexual contact, according to the documents. Nelson and his wife no longer are a couple.

In the termination letter, Police Chief Kathy Atwood wrote that Nelson's conduct was disheartening and a violation of his duty as a police officer to protect the teen from harm.

The decision to fire Nelson was based on the teen's "credible sworn statement" and "compelling circumstantial evidence supporting (the girl's) allegations," the chief wrote.

"Your conduct is unbecoming an Everett officer and fails to meet the high standards of integrity, trust, public trust, and professionalism incumbent upon us all," Atwood wrote.
