Are police officers allowed to lie to you? Yes the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can lie to the American people. Police officers are trained at lying, twisting words and being manipulative. Police officers and other law enforcement agents are very skilled at getting information from people. So don’t try to “out smart” a police officer and don’t try being a “smooth talker” because you will lose! If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might come out ahead more than you expected.

Sex-sting arrest prompts suit against Sheriff's Office

By  OS 

In 2011, Kenneth Hochstein, a federal corrections officer and father of four, responded to Craigslist ads soliciting sex.

But the Lake County man says he didn't know the offer included meeting up with a minor.

So when the 46-year-old traveled to a house to see the woman he had been talking with, he was stunned to find a team of undercover cops waiting to arrest him.

A state judge agreed with Hochstein's side of the story and dismissed his criminal charges, citing errors made by Orange County Sheriff's Office detectives during the massive child-sex sting, which netted 50 arrests from around the state.
