Thousands of Traffic Tickets Dismissed After HPD Officers Lied


Thousands of speeding tickets written by four disgraced Houston Police Department officers were dismissed after their ticket-falsification scheme was exposed. Randy Zamora, Chief of the Criminal Law Division for the City of Houston Legal Department, said it was "in the interest of justice and simply the right thing to do" to dismiss the tickets. The I-Team of KHOU in Houston first revealed that officers Rudolph Farias, John Garcia, Robert Manzanales and Gregory Rosa were listing each other as "witnesses" for speeding violations, despite the officers not being present. The gang of four were allegedly seeking to collect more overtime pay for court appearances. KHOU reported that since the beginning of 2014, the four officers wrote more than 5,000 tickets, producing fees and fines of over $350,000.
