A former Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy, who was scheduled to stand trial next week, pleaded guilty Friday to federal charges of stealing and laundering drug money and filing a false income tax return. Daniel M. Garner, who is serving a five-year prison term for a similar 1990 conviction, admitted stealing $170,000 from drug traffickers during two raids in 1986 and said he used stolen funds to help purchase a BMW for his wife and a condominium. When asked by U. S. District Judge William J.

In what defense attorneys claim is an attempt to intimidate witnesses, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has warned its employees that they must notify the department if they plan to appear on behalf of suspended deputies on trial for alleged money skimming. A teletype sent two months ago to sheriff's stations told deputies to inform their superiors of any plans to testify for the former members of a Lennox-based anti-narcotics crew who are defendants in a federal court case.

In a startling setback for government prosecutors, six Los Angeles County narcotics officers were acquitted Wednesday on 13 counts of civil rights and theft charges spawned by a federal corruption investigation.

Father Juan Romero still remembers how, as a young priest 30 years ago, he was forbidden to give a Spanish homily to his Latino immigrant parishioners in East Los Angeles--even if they spoke nothing else. "The idea was let them learn English," recalled Romero, now the priest at St. Clement Parish church in Santa Monica. "For some pastors, it was more important to teach English than to preach the gospel. We've come a long way, baby, since then."
