( Blame Their Boss, He Hired Them)

Billings, Montana--//MNA Press//--The Three Police sex dominoes fall one by one after Paul Lamantia voluntarily came forward and identified himself as one of the officers involved.
All three Officers had sexual relations with evidence technician Rawlyn Strizich who was fired for stealing drugs from the evidence room.
The self outing was clearly drafted by their lawyers based on the wording and the type of words that were used. All the Officers LaMantia, Edwards, and Anglin tried to hide from the public their participation in moral turpitude behavior, yet in the statements all of the Officers basically claimed that they were trying to "Shield their families."
A bit late for that under the circumstances considering what they did and how they did it.
The damage to their families was self induced and had nothing to do with the public scrutiny.
Clear to the end, the attorneys for the Officers were trying to dilute the gravity of their clients actions yet, Judge Don Harris would have no part in it.
According to Judge Don Harris, the Officers own counsel made a grave error by producing their names in one of the fillings. So from the beginning, maybe the counsel of the 3 police Officers did not have a grasp, as to how to really handle their clients case.
Billings Police Officer Edwards stated through his lawyers that he will "Own it."
The three Billings Police Officers were represented by the relatively new group of lawyers called Scheveck and Salminen Law Firm.
One has to hand it to this young group of lawyers as they tried to represent their clients in the best fashion that they could. If they would have been successful, they would have set precedence in Montana and certainly the Billings Courts.
Edwards is a married police officer with kids.
All three of the Billings, Officers were trying to hide from the public by using the court to hide their dirty sexual deeds.
The Officers were also trying to shield themselves and according to them, their families from undue embarrassment, but that was a decision that they made to disregard the feelings of their own families, kids, wife's and the public when they made the bad choice of consorting in the manner that they did with evidence technician, Rawlyn Strizich.
Yes, lives were ruined, people gossiped, even those good police officers that are on the force suffered due to the bad choices and moral turpitude of three billings police officers bad decisions. According to sources, there may come out of this a divorce or two. Sad as it may be.
Billings Police Chief, Rich St. John clearly, does not have command of his department and this is just proof as to why the public should resist any attempt he makes in getting any future funding for his police department until, he cleans up his MESS.
Billings Police Chief Rich St. John hired the three bad cops.
St. Johns judgment, of these men was lacking.
St. John missed the understanding of Moral turpitude and probably did not ask those important questions.
But under the concept of what would be described as moral turpitude is the actual act of baseness, vileness including moral depravity both in the private and public social duties that these three Billings Police Officer's committed. Are they guilty YES, by all counts.
According to the U.S. State Department's own website, "Whether a state law offense constitutes a crime involving moral turpitude, it is decided by statue bases, because each state statue might cover different ranges of behaviors, some of which may not necessarily involve moral turpitude under the Federal definition."
In this case, all three Billings Police Officers are GUILTY of multitude moral turpitude-ness such as adultery, gross sexual indecency, sexual lewdness, What these three Officers lack, is "Good Moral Character." which is the opposite of moral turpitude.
If Officer Edwards stays on the force, his credibility is shot as he makes bad decisions.
If Officer Anglin stays on the force, his credibility is shot as he makes bad decisions.
Since Paul LaMantia resigned, that's just one more BAD COP, off the streets of Montana.
