Review: Serious complaints against deputies mishandled

SEATTLE (AP) — A review by an outside consultant has found issues with the way the King County Sheriff’s Office classifies misconduct complaints and says the current system has caused several serious allegations against deputies to go uninvestigated.

The review states that because of the office’s system, multiple complaints against deputies — including allegations of sexual assault, false arrest, an illegal and false reporting — weren’t investigated.
