Moloney admitted to his lies during preparations for pre-trial hearings in July 2017.
“Such conduct diminishes public trust and is, in fact, criminal. We intend to now hold the defendant accountable,” said Gonzelez.
Because of the misconduct and unconstitutional deception of the officer, the suspect’s weapons charges were dismissed.
Moloney faces up to 4 years in prison and has been placed on modified duty.
