SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Cal. ( & KRNV) – South Lake Tahoe police officer, Johnny Poland is expected to plea guilty next week to federal charges according to LakeTahoeNews.Net.

Poland was indicted in early 2013 on three counts related to tampering with a witness and one count of obstruction of an official proceeding.

According to court documents, Poland was caught up in a love triangle with a gang member's girlfriend and he tried to help drug traffickers evade police and throw investigators off their path.

A criminal complaint filed in January says a probe uncovered allegations of Poland's misconduct dating to October 2003 when he allegedly engaged in sexual activity with a 17-year-old female student while he was a school resource officer at South Lake Tahoe High School.

Speaking of “obstruction of justice” – DA Vern Pierson and has sidekick Bill Clark are obstructing justice and flat out telling boldface lies to cover up the criminal activity by Dennis Justin of the Justin Brothers Bail Bonds Co. The DA is now saying Dennis Justin was not involved or even at the location of the CRIME SCENE… The story can be found at Protesting will resume at the Lake Tahoe DA office (courthouse) with the worlds largest crime scene tape and my new signs reflecting corruption in the District Attorneys office. I just protest in Placerville and revived massive press attention and positive feedback from the locals. The Grand Jury needs to be re-activated and these corrupt individuals need to be removed from public office. Thank you, please honk when you see us protesting this scandal.
