Federal jury awards whistleblowing deputy $260K

Honest deputy, target of harassment for speaking and acting truthfully, receives justice in federal court:

Arling Olson, 53, who still serves as a deputy sheriff in Polk County, ran for sheriff against [Sheriff Tim] Moore in 2006 and cooperated in an investigation carried out by the state Division of Criminal Investigation in 2007 into whether Moore had surreptitiously videotaped the interview of a criminal defendant in 2002 and beaten an arrestee in handcuffs in 2003.
