LAFD Won’t Face Discipline in Porn Scandal

Los Angeles firefighters won’t face discipline for their role in a pair of porn videos, according to a letter from chief Brian Cummings to Councilman Dennis Zine:

“On or about May 5, 2011, the Los Angeles Fire Department learned that a video depicting a female posing inappropriately on LAFD Engine 263 existed on the Internet. The Fire Department initiated a complaint investigation on that date. On or about September 4, 2011, the Fire Department discovered that a second video of a similar nature existed on the Internet involving LAFD Engine 41 and a second investigation was initiated. The investigation shows that the videos were taken in or before 2008.

Based on City Charter 1060(a), the Fire Department cannot suspend, remove, or separate a sworn member from service for acts that are over two years old. However, the Fire Department will complete its investigation and review its policies, procedures and practices to ensure that this type of conduct will not occur again.”

The good ol’ statue of limitations clause to the rescue. The two firehouses in question were Firehouse 63 in Venice featuring adult star Charley Chase and Firehouse 41 in Hollywood featuring Mariah Milano.
