The case against Kenneth Moreno, who was acquitted by a jury in 2011 of assaulting the 29-year-old woman while on duty, drew national headlines as a symbol of police misbehavior.

Suspended California State Senator Leland Yee arrives at the Phillip Burton Federal Building for his arraignment hearing in San Francisco, CaliforniaBy Jennifer Chaussee SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California State Senator Leland Yee pleaded not guilty to racketeering charges on Thursday after federal investigators expanded existing conspiracy charges against the Democratic lawmaker last week.  Yee, who made the plea during a brief court appearance in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, was indicted earlier this year over allegations of corruption and taking part in a gun trafficking scheme. Federal investigators expanded those charges last week to include accusations that Yee participated in a pattern of racketeering activity, including soliciting bribes from the owner of a National Football League team in exchange for a favorable vote on pending legislation. Yee, 65, is one of three California state senators, along with Democrats Roderick Wright and Ron Calderon, who were suspended in March over ethics charges, costing their party a cherished two-thirds legislative majority in the Senate during an election year.
