Tony Diaz

Tony Diaz

On June 3, 2016, Tony Diaz was convicted of illegally living in his truck in San Diego, California and fined $180. At trial Diaz said he was there early to fish (see trial transcript, bottom left), but the officer said he found Diaz sleeping in his vehicle. Diaz was exonerated in 2017 because police body camera footage, which had previously not been turned over to the defense, showed that the police officer had lied.
