Suspended Broward County Florida Deputy Sheriff Brent Wooddell Awaiting Theft And Misconduct Trial Removed Court Ordered GPS Ankle Monitor And Went To Strip Club

June 6, 2012

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA – A suspended Broward Sheriff’s detective under house arrest while facing trial on grand theft, official misconduct and other charges took off his GPS monitor and visited a Pompano Beach strip club, where deputies arrested him Monday night.

Prosecutors had already argued twice to have Brent Wooddell’s $2,000 bond revoked, first after he allegedly sent an intimidating text message to a witness in his case, and again after he was accused of fleeing from the scene of an accident while on his way to a court hearing. Broward Circuit Judge Carlos Rebollo allowed Wooddell to stay out of jail both times.

According to an arrest warrant, Wooddell took off his ankle monitor on Sunday and was told by his pre-trial release officer to turn himself in Monday morning. When he didn’t show, officials demanded his arrest.

Deputies found him Tuesday at 9:20 p.m. at the Cheetah strip club in Pompano Beach. He was in custody at the Broward Main Jail as of Tuesday afternoon.

Wooddell was arrested in September 2011 after a sting operation allegedly caught him in the act of stealing $1,340 from an oxycodone dealer he had just arrested. The dealer was actually an undercover Miami-Dade police officer. According to the Sheriff’s Office, the phony suspect had pills and $7,340 in a blue bag when he was taken into custody, but Wooddell only turned in $6,000 when he got to the Deerfield Beach substation.

Officials said the undercover operation was captured on video and audio recordings.

Wooddell has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of his criminal case.

On his way to a formal arraignment in February, Wooddell’s car crashed into another vehicle on Florida’s Turnpike, according to court records. No one was injured in the crash, but Wooddell didn’t report it for fear of being late to his court date.

Prosecutors didn’t learn about that violation until May, at which point Assistant State Attorney Adriana Alcalde-Padron urged Rebollo to revoke Wooddell’s bond. But Rebollo kept Wooddell under house arrest, ordering the suspended detective to remain at home except when shopping or traveling to and from his job at a Hyundai dealership in Lake Park.

A month earlier, Alcalde-Padron accused Wooddell of sending text messages to a witness in the case. At that time, Rebollo reminded the defendant to avoid contact with witnesses as one of the conditions of his release.

“We have moved to revoke his bond twice,” Alcalde-Padron said Tuesday. “This is his third violation. Hopefully, he will now remain in custody at least until it’s time for his trial.”

In addition to the grand theft and official misconduct charges, Woddell is accused of tampering with evidence, falsifying records and delivery of steroids. If convicted of all charges, he faces more than 30 years in prison.

Pedophile Veteran Troy New York Police Officer Sgt. Patrick Rosney Suspended After Arrest In New York City While Seeking Sex With 14 Year Old Girl

June 3, 2012

TROY, NEW YORK – A Troy police sergeant has found himself on the other side of the law. Patrick Rosney was arrested by New York City Police. They say he entered a chat room this week and believed he was talking with a 14-year-old girl who was actually an undercover police officer.

He is accused of trying to solicit sex.

The 26-year veteran is charged with attempted dissemination of indecent material to minor and endangering the welfare of a child.

Troy Police Chief John Tedesco said the case is taking a toll on the department.

“Officers today after the arrest was made. We’ll continue to do so throughout the day at other role calls. As you can imagine, they’re angry. Certainly take into consideration sympathies for his family but we’re a strong agency, we’re an agency of character and we’ll get through this. We do expect a rough ride obviously but there’s a lot of anger,” said Chief Tedesco.

Rosney has been suspended without pay. He was taken to Queens on Friday for arraignment.

Tipton County Deputy Sheriff Jason Cochran Suspended Amid Investigation Into Sex With A Child

April 17, 2012

COVINGTON, TENNESSEE – A Tipton County Sheriff’s Deputy is suspended and under investigation after he was accused of sexual misconduct.

Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Cochran is off the streets and on unpaid leave after he was accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.

“It’s still very much ongoing, there are still other witnesses and evidence that needs to be found and gathered,” said District Attorney General Mike Dunavant.

The sheriff’s department started an internal investigation last Monday, but Deputy Cochran has not been officially charged.

“All of the allegations regarding the contact were off duty, that is, they were not committed during the time when he was acting in his capacity as a sheriff’s deputy,” said Dunvant.

The alleged sexual contact between Deputy Cochran and the 17-year-old girl happened within the past two months.

District Attorney Mike Dunavant says if the allegations are true, Deputy Cochran will be charged with aggravated statutory rape.

If he is charged, an immediate warrant could be issued for Cochran’s arrest or the case could be presented to the Tipton County grand jury in July.

“This type of conduct will not be tolerated and is certainly not the current standard of quality employees at the Sheriff’s Office,” said Tipton County Sheriff Pancho Chumley in a press release.

“Just as in this case, even when we have not received a complaint from a victim, we become aware of any questionable conduct by any employee we will request it to be investigated. I feel this is the only way to maintain the standards the citizens of Tipton County deserve and I demand it at the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office,” he said.

No one at the Tipton County Sheriff’s Department would speak on camera about the investigation.

3 Park County Colorado Deputy Sheriffs Suspended After Shooting Beer Keg At Party In Woods

April 12, 2012

PARK COUNTY, COLORADO – The Park County undersheriff says he has suspended two deputies after accusations they shot at a beer keg while breaking up an underage party in the woods.

A third deputy, a reserve, was going to be suspended on Friday, Undersheriff Monte Gore said.Two full-time deputies were suspended on Tuesday.

“I’m deeply disappointed,” Gore told 7NEWS reporter Russell Haythorn.

“Let me just say, as a husband and a father, I’ve got a 5 year old and an 8 year old, and I’m sure at sometime those kids are going to be at a party,” Gore said. “And if I had reports that a deputy discharged a firearm at that party, I would be furious. I would be steaming.”

“It was one, one two. It was consecutive. It wasn’t spread out,” said one student who didn’t want to be identified.

The investigation began after parents complained that deputies shot at a keg after catching the teens drinking last weekend in a remote area of the Pike National Forest.

One parent told 7NEWS more than one deputy fired shots in an effort to break a chain the teens had used to secure the keg to a tree or a fence.

“There was no reason to try and try to take down a keg with a gun. Chain cutters, wire cutters maybe,” said the student.

Gore said he’s doing an internal affairs investigation in possible misconduct by the deputies, and he has asked the Teller County Sheriff’s Office to conduct an independent investigation into potential criminal actions during the shooting incident.

“We don’t investigate our own people because that would be a conflict of interest,” Gore said. “We take this very seriously, and I can assure everyone we are going to do the right thing.”

Gore said the teens attend Woodland Park High School. Several of the partygoers were ticketed for being minors in possession of alcohol, he added.

“I mean we were just going to have fun. The cops had to take their job a little seriously. But in the end they got suspended. So an even situation I’d say,” said another student.

Parents of teenagers who attended the party told 7NEWS they thought the deputies’ actions were reckless.

Baltimore Maryland Police Officer Michael W. Woodlon Suspended After Lying To Justify An Arrest

March 10, 2009

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – A Baltimore police officer accused of lying in charging documents to justify a drug arrest has been suspended pending the outcome of an internal investigation that has spread to the second in command of the city’s elite violence-reduction division.

Police suspended Officer Michael W. Woodlon of the Violent Crimes Impact Division on Friday, after The Baltimore Sun supplied the department with a transcript of his radio communications with a civilian running a police surveillance camera. The civilian, Irma Reed, is also under investigation.

A tape of the communications between Woodlon and Reed appears to contradict the charging documents that Woodlon filed against defendants Michael Davis, Hattie Wade and Troy Thomas, who were accused of being the seller, buyer and lookout, respectively, in a March 11, 2008, drug case.

A prosecutor noted the apparent discrepancies and dropped drug distribution charges against Davis on Jan. 22, but not before Wade had pleaded guilty in District Court to cocaine possession. She is now on probation.

The city’s chief drug prosecutor notified Maj. John Hess, a commander in the Violent Crimes Impact Division, that Woodlon might not have seen what he described in charging documents. Police are investigating Hess’ handling of the matter.

“Everyone who touched this case is being reviewed by internal investigations,” said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. “This is getting the attention of the department at its highest levels.”

In charging documents, Woodlon wrote that while working in a covert location, he watched Davis, 20, and Wade, 40, spend 10 seconds inside a store at North Monroe Street and Walbrook Avenue and emerge without bags and with Wade’s right hand clenched.

Woodlon wrote that he followed Wade to West North Avenue and North Payson Street, where she tried to put cocaine in her mouth but dropped it as he moved to make an arrest.

“At no time did I lose sight of defendant Wade,” Woodlon wrote.

But the recording suggests that Woodlon saw little and that there was another buyer, a white woman, whom he did not arrest.

On the tape, Woodlon, who had been on the force for three years, reported that he was “clearing the area” so he wouldn’t “scare off” the buyers and the seller, who were being monitored by Reed on a police surveillance camera. Reed had retired as a police officer in 2005 and returned as a camera operator about three months before the arrest.

“You let me know when they separate and I’ll go stop them,” Woodlon told Reed.

Secondslater, Reed told Woodlon that she was “almost sure” that a drug deal had occurred inside the store.

“What’s their direction of travel?” Woodlon asked.

Reed then described the movements of the two buyers – a white woman in a purple jacket and black woman in a black jacket.

“Are they still walking up [North Avenue]?” Woodlon asked a few seconds later.

“I’m at Pulaski and Walbrook,” he said. “When they walk past Payson toward Pulaski, let me know. I’m going to get out and walk up on them.”

The intersections are three blocks apart and around a corner.

Seconds after Reed told Woodlon that the women were crossing Payson Street, he replied: “I see them. I’m walking right toward them.” Reed said, “All right. The black woman went up to her mouth.”

The charging documents do not mention Reed or the role that she and the surveillance system played in the arrests.
