The Los Angeles grand jury on Monday began hearing testimony into the allegations that openly gay deputy police chief David Kalish molested teenage boys during the 1970s, the Los Angeles Times reports. Sources told the newspaper that two people have testified so far in the closed-door hearings and that a decision is not expected until the end of the month.
Among those expected to testify are three men who say Kalish molested them when they were Explorer Scouts and Kalish was a supervisor of the LAPD-sponsored program.
Kalish, a 28-year veteran of the department who was considered among the top candidates for police chief last year, was suspended on March 29 as a result of the investigation into the charges.
