Richard Charles Barrios III was a Ventura County Sheriff’s deputy. After pleading guilty, Barrios received a one-year sentence followed by two years probation. The results of his drug test that showed that the woman Barrios arrested for DUI driving was not under the influence, were thrown in a garbage can. Barrios then informed a supervisor that the woman had refused to provide a urine sample. A second deputy was able to find the test. Another sample was provided by the woman, and it also proved negative. Her charges were dropped and she was granted bail.
