Chief Charlie Beck’s Response to Officers’ Convictions NR12514AS

Los Angeles:  On Tuesday, November 13, 2012, a Los Angeles Police Officer, Richard Amio, and a former Los Angeles Police Officer, Evan Samuel, were found guilty of lying under oath four years ago regarding a narcotics case.  The officers are to be sentenced in December.

The Los Angeles Police Department holds our officers to the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.

Officer Samuel is no longer a Los Angeles Police Officer and Officer Amio is facing the adjudication of his internal complaint.  Individuals convicted of a felony in California are ineligible to remain employed as police officers.

"I am truly saddened by the events that led to the perjury conviction of a current and a former Los Angeles Police Officer" said LAPD Chief Charlie Beck.  “As I said when the charges were filed, I do not believe their intent was evil, just extremely misguided. The character of our organization is defined by the conduct that we condone. These actions were entirely unacceptable."
