Bad apple in the bunch

Man, if you can't trust the good guys who can you trust?

Not only did he bring shame and dishonor to the department and badge but apparently he's bolluxed up several hundred cases and possibly some innocent folks were convicted.

Deputy fired in drug case
Express-News -

The Bexar County Sheriff's Office on Friday fired Deputy Charles Flores, whose actions in a drug case nearly two years ago might have put dozens of drug cases in peril, his lawyer, Jimmy Parks Jr., confirmed.

Flores, a 10-year veteran, is alleged by his own agency to have lied about the source of information used to get a search warrant in December 2008.

If indicted, Flores, 31, would be the first deputy prosecuted as the result of separate, ongoing investigations into alleged wrongdoing by current and former members of the Bexar County Sheriff's Office 15-person narcotics unit.
