Los Angeles County Men's Central Jail and the Twin Towers Correctional Facility.

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.
