A federal judge Monday refused to dismiss criminal charges against a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy who was secretly taped by a former narcotics officer cooperating with prosecutors in a drug money-skimming investigation. Deputy Tyrone Powe had sought to dismiss the indictment against him, contending that the surreptitious recording by a government informant violated an agreement with prosecutors not to contact Powe without notifying his attorney.
