EX-LA COUNTY SHERIFF LEROY BACA DIAGNOSED WITH ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Former Los Angeles County Sheriff Leroy Baca was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, Eyewitness News has learned.
Baca, 74, will be sentenced by a federal judge on July 11 for his role in a scheme to block an FBI investigation into Los Angeles County jails.
Baca's diagnosis was confirmed in court filings.
Prosecutors said Baca is in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, and while he's able to function in his everyday life, his long-term prognosis is bleak.
