Investigators looked at more than 1300 minutes of video and discovered evidence of Wester planting the drugs.

That led officials to release about ten people from prison and drop more than one hundred cases last year.

Wester now faces multiple felony charges, including racketeering, false imprisonment and fabricating evidence.
