Sheriff's deputies in US state face charges

Sixteen defendants arrested on Monday and two others expected to turn themselves in shortly.

    In California, eighteen officers from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department are facing a range of criminal charges.
     
    An FBI investigation into corruption and abuse of inmates led to their arrest.
     
    Federal officials say the men saw themselves as being "above the law."
