Joshua Chong, LAPD Sergeant, Escapes Responsibility For Murder Threats in OC

In exchange for the Orange County District Attorney's office dropping two criminal charges–a felony and a misdemeanor, a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) sergeant pleaded guilty to a third misdemeanor count of obsessive phone text harassing a woman who'd spurned his affections.

Thanks to the plea deal, Joshua Jinwook Chong–a 42-year-old Fullerton resident–won't have to pay for threatening to murder his ex-girlfriend and her male friend.

***The Cop Protection Plan (CPP) apparently does not extend to U.S. Marines. In March, a marine from Camp Pendleton was sentenced to three years in prison for making criminal threats in a murder plot.
