    Mission Viejo Patch: Sheriff's Deputy's Lakeside Crash Under Review (Sept 30 2013)

    Deputy Adewale Olukoju, 44, who was not wearing a seatbelt when he sped 70-75 MPH into a light pole in June, continues to collect a paycheck during the investigation, OCSD Lt. Jeff Hallock said.

    Olukoju has not returned to work though, Hallock said, because he is on leave for worker's compensation. Olukoju was ejected from his police cruiser after he crashed while traveling south on Marguerite near Vista Del Lago. He was not responding to an emergency, authorities said. The deputy is not suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash.

    So much for freedom of the press and the public's right to know, which has been largely subverted in California:

    A traffic investigation of the crash has been completed by the OCSD, but the investigation report will not be released to the public, Hallock said. "The law says you can't release certain things in a peace officer's file," he said.
