The LAPD may still be punished ,but not charged for releasing the police photos of the physical abuse of Rihanna by her ex-boyfriend.Chris Brown.
After a three-year internal affairs probe, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office confirmed that it has no plans to file criminal charges against two LAPD officers for releasing the brutal pics in the wake of the February 2009 beatdown Rihanna received at the hands of then-beau Chris Brown, citing "insufficient evidence."
Two female officers were involved in the supposed leak to TMZ. One of the officers took a pic of the original photo of Rihanna and sent it to her email address. The other female officer tried to call TMZ several times and never connected with them.
"However, no additional evidence suggests that Reyes or Leopz provided this photograph to TMZ," Pentz wrote. "The investigation reveals that several other LAPD personnel also possessed this photograph. Moreover, a search of Reyes' and Lopez's bank accounts failed to locate any payment by any media outlet. As such, although both Reyes and Lopez's actions are suspicious, they are insufficient to support a criminal prosecution."
While the officers, who were suspended during the investigation, may be off the hook criminally they may not keep their jobs for long.
