Charges Rejected Against La Habra Police Officer

The Orange County District Attorney has declined to file criminal charges against a La Habra City police officer who crashed into and killed a husband and wife who were on their way to hear their daughter sing in a church musical. Sources say that the California Highway patrol investigated the crash. The officer was said to be on her way to assist in the pursuit of a parolee. The CHP estimated her speed at 62 in a 35 mile per hour zone. CHP investigators recommended that criminal charges be filed against the officer but the District Attorney’s office declined. The La Habra Police Department is said to be conducting their own investigation about the incident.
