Yesterday federal officials indicted 18 current and former Sheriff's Deputies for charges including conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and giving false statements. 

It's all part of a long-running FBI investigation into misconduct in L.A. county's jails. The alleged crimes even include changing an inmate's name and faking his release after deputies discovered he was working as a federal informant.

For more on this unfolding story we're joined by KPCC's politics reporter Frank Stoltze.
