High Court declines review of ex-LA Sheriff Lee Baca's case

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca is likely headed to prison after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review his corruption case. The 9th Circuit Court previously ruled that Baca received a fair trial. Baca is 77. He stepped down as sheriff in 2014 amid an FBI investigation into abuses at the nation's largest jail system. A jury convicted him of obstructing the investigation and lying to prosecutors. His lawyer unsuccessfully argued on appeal that the jury should have been told of Baca's Alzheimer's disease diagnosis in 2016. Baca has remained free during his appeals.
