Guillermo Alarcon Jr
GOT lucky. He was arrested and charged with crack cocaine possession. The officers that arrested him swore under oath in court that they saw him throw a box, that it cracked open, and that drugs were found inside.
He probably would have gone to jail.
Except for the fact that it wasn't true. The police were recorded by a surveillance camera, and they were lying. An innocent man was going to have his life destroyed, by the very people who swore to protect him.
The LA Times has the story
