From the Jailhouse Lawyers of Minnesota file:
In Rochester, Richard Allen Dalton is admitting he lied to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension when he claimed police officer Vanessa Mason helped him deliver and pick up drugs. “What came out of my mouth was all false, 110 percent, and I’m taking it all back,” the Rochester Post Bulletin quotes Dalton.
Where did he make that admission? In a lawsuit filing against a local television station. He’s claiming the station “put me on national TV as a big snitch.”
The officer is on administrative leave.
