LAS VEGAS - Metro Internal Affairs has turned over its investigatory files into a former all-star vice detective that is now the target of an FBI investigation.
Ocean Fleming is serving a life sentence for kidnapping and torturing prostitutes who worked for him.
But in a story broken by the I-Team, his attorney Janiece Marshall is appealing and has launched her own investigation into detective Chris Baughman who put Fleming away.
Fleming says Baughman was having sexual relationshps with the prostitutes who became witnesses against him. And that is also one of the allegations the FBI probe is looking into.
Thursday, a judge gave the internal affairs files on Baughman to Marshall.
"The court did receive during in camera review various documents from internal affairs division of Metro and determine that those documents should be turned over to both sides. So, counsel if you can approach," said District Court Judge Michael Billani.
The court sealed the files after handing them over.
Marshall requested them after Sheriff Joe Lombardo confirmed the existence of an FBI investigation during an interview with the I-Team.
She has also introduced text messages between Baughman and the prostitute that was the main witness against Fleming.
Similar allegations have been made against Baughman in another case involving a convicted pimp named Raymond Sharpe.
