Sheriff’s Deputies Sentenced to Probation for Conspiring to Sell Drugs They Stole

“Defendant’s actions were motivated by greed, and he committed these crimes repeatedly over a nine-month period,” prosecutors said. “His conduct has tarnished the reputation of the KCSO.”

Prosecutors recommended probation for Penney, noting there was no evidence of his criminal activity beyond his one-time theft of marijuana from the storage unit. Penney was the first to go to authorities and helped convince August and former Bakersfield Police Department Detective Patrick Mara to join him in coming clean.

During Monday’s hearing, August’s “little sister,” Stormy August, now 21 — 10 years younger than her brother — told the court that Logan “saved me and my little sister from a very rough childhood.”

In fact, August and his wife, Tiffany, brought the younger siblings home to live with them when August was still in the sheriff’s academy and the young couple had a 1-year-old baby to care for.

“My husband and I have known each other since the fourth grade,” Tiffany told the judge.

After he joined the KCSO, her husband threw himself into his work, Tiffany August said.

“He likes to conquer,” she said. “He would work every overtime, every holiday for years.”

But she noticed a change in him after he joined the narcotics team.

“I didn’t know the burden he was carrying.”

Both women broke into tears during their statements, as did August himself, as he apologized to his friend, Penney, his family, his fellow officers and the community as a whole.

He told O’Neill he was aware the judge once worked in law enforcement, and he apologized to him as well.

Penney was less effusive, and while he apologized for breaking his oath to uphold the law and protect the community, he didn’t ask family members to speak on his behalf.
