The Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs (AOCDS) is asking Southern California residents to urgently donate blood for the prematurely born baby of a decorated deputy.
Aiden, the infant, was born a whopping three months early on Dec. 20 and, in preparation for expected future blood transfusions, needs healthy people with Type O+ or O- blood to donate at the Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital (12401 Washington Blvd.) in Whittier.
Please call the hospital now at (562) 698-0811 ext. 12872 to make an appointment.

Aiden is the son of Deputy Juan Viramontes and his wife, Lori.

R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club; been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists; and hailed by two New York Times Magazine writers for his “herculean job” exposing Southern California law enforcement corruption.
