Sean Paul Delacerda, LA County Sheriff's Deputy, Gets 13 Years for Assaulting Ex-Girlfriend
Early Tuesday morning, the woman involved in a domestic relationship with Ziesmer told another LAPD officer that the San Clemente resident made a threat against her that made her fear for her life, reads an OCDA arraignment statement.
The officer who took the complaint told authorities within the department, and when Ziesmer arrived at work that day he was "disarmed," according to the OCDA.
However, because the incident happened in San Clemente, it is being investigated by the Orange County Sheriff's Department. As the probe continues, Ziesmer is currently charged with one felony count of criminal threats that could fetch up to three years in state prison with a conviction.
In May, Ziesmer was honored by San Fernando Valley mental health providers for his "dedicated support and assistance" responding to those " in need of emergency mental health services," reports the LAPD blog.
Ziesmer also turns up in a 2010 state appeals case based on the officer watching a drug deal go down on Skid Row.
