Who would have guessed? A “Sworn officer of the court” lying under testimony. The only difference here is that it caught up to him. Usually the lies go unnoticed and the result is that the power of the state is then used to punish an innocent individual. Don’t think that this is a “Few bad apples”. The only unusual circumstance is that he got busted lying. Had they not been looking to get him and if the lies fit their narrative, they would have gone unmentioned.
“A Lake County sheriff’s deputy has been indicted on three counts of perjury alleging he gave inconsistent testimony in a driving under the influence case.
Justin Hill, a sheriff’s deputy since 2014, faces up to five years in prison if found guilty of the felony charge approved Wednesday by a Lake County grand jury.
A $10,000 arrest warrant was issued for Hill after the indictment, authorities said. The 28-year-old Kenosha resident later turned himself in at the sheriff’s office and was released after posting bond.
The charges stem from testimony Hill gave Nov. 2 during a summary suspension hearing in a DUI matter, authorities said.
“It was discovered there were inconsistencies with Hill’s testimony which potentially resulted in perjury,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release Wednesday.
Deputy Chief James Elliot of the sheriff’s Office of Professional Standards investigated the matter, and Hill was placed on administrative leave and relieved of his police powers, authorities said.”
