San Diego police officer accused of fixing tickets resigns

February 22, 2012 |  5:31 pm

A San Diego police sergeant facing charges of ticket-fixing has resigned, the Police Department said Wednesday.

Kevin Friedman, a supervisor in the traffic division, was a 27-year veteran of the department.

Friedman and Deputy Dist. Atty. Allison Debow face misdemeanor charges of fixing two tickets. A hearing is set in San Diego County Superior Court on March 7.

Debow is on paid administrative leave, according to the district attorney's office.

Debow allegedly asked Friedman to destroy seat-belt tickets issued by a San Diego police officer to Debow and Deputy Dist. Atty. Amy Maund. Maund was unaware that Debow made the request, according to prosecutors.
