Good evening. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. This is not a situation where there is a right to privacy or anything confidential and if the officer observed this and relayed it to your husband there is notning illegal about that. Now, I do not know if anything was happening in the vehicle that could amount to a charge being filed but if you wanted to at least report this to internal affairs they could investigate the officer and see if he is subject to discipline. You would have to explain the situation and could avail yourself so I would be at your discretion.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
