In an alleged frame-up that has captured the personal attention of Los Angeles County Public Defender Michael P. Judge, a mother and daughter with no criminal records say a band of rogue Los Angeles police officers planted drugs on them, stole their life savings, and took them to jail on false charges that the city attorney later used to evict them from an apartment they had lived in for more than a decade.
