Sawicki Sentenced to 10 Days

Brian Sawicki

Former Santa Barbara Police detective Brian Sawicki — who was found guilty of evading arrest and destroying evidence, but avoided the most serious charges of lewd behavior and annoying or molesting two teens — was sentenced to 10 days of jail last week, which could be served in a work release program, a judge said. Sawicki was also found not guilty of unlawful electronic peeping for installing a video camera in a public bathroom. It was his intent, he said, to video a woman performing oral sex on him, but it instead captured strangers using the bathroom. It was alleged that Sawicki was masturbating on the beach in front of the girls, but he denied he was masturbating, and said his intention was to make a private video on a secluded part of the beach.
