A former Sacramento police officer accused of filing false police reports and then lying about it has been ordered to stand trial.
Sacramento Superior Court Judge Patrick Marlette issued the holding order Tuesday on Brandon Michael Mullock, 27, on 23 counts of filing false police reports and 11 counts of perjury.
Marlette ordered Mullock back into court on June 8 to set a trial date.
In Mullock's three-week preliminary hearing, Deputy District Attorney Chris Carlson played videotapes of the officer's DUI stops of motorists and drew contrasts from police witnesses between what Mullock wrote in his report and what was depicted in the films.
At a press conference last year, Sacramento County District Attorney Jan Scully said her office was forced to dismiss 79 DUI cases as a result of Mullock's conduct.
