Thank you for your follow up.
The ramifications would definitely depend on how far the improper conduct would affect the investigation.
If the matter does not affect the investigation, this may result in a private reprimand. It is unlikely that this would go into his jacket, because the authorities would not want to make this available to the defense attorney
if the defense attorney ever decides to look into this possibility. Chances for advancement may also suffer, but would of course depend on his conduct overall in other duties of his job.
If the matter costs the DA the case, the officer is likely to be publicly reprimanded, and may even be fired. If you recall, in the trial of OJ Simpson, Mark Fuhrman was heavily made the scapegoat for his questionable conduct and remarks, which essentially ended his career with the LAPD.IMPORTANT INFO
