BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — A former Kern County sheriff’s deputy charged with conspiracy to steal marijuana evidence and sell it has apologized in a YouTube video.
In a video posted Sunday, Logan August calls himself “despicable” and a disgrace to the badge he once wore.
He and his wife appear in the video, which was reported by the Bakersfield Californian (http://bit.ly/2qZcv1B ).
Logan was assigned to a narcotics unit in 2014 when he accessed a storage unit containing marijuana plants confiscated from illegal grow operations. He resigned a year later.
He and another former deputy, Derrick Penney — have agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy.
Prosecutors say they conspired with a Bakersfield police detective, Patrick Mara.
Mara and another Bakersfield police employee were sentenced to federal prison last year.
