copThe Press-Interprise, by Jan Sears The Riverside County District Attorney’s Office has filed eight felony charges today against the chief of the Mt. San Jacinto College Police Department. The cases are being prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Deborah Lucky of the DA’s Public Integrity Unit. The charges against Kevin Harold Segawa include bribery, perjury and misappropriation of public funds. Segawa, 39, surrendered to DA’s investigators at 2 p.m. today.

Segawa failed to disclose any of the gifts on California Fair Political Practices Commission Form 700 in either 2006 or 2007, as he was required to do by law. Failing to do so lead to the perjury and filing a false public document counts, district attorney officials said.

Also charged was Morgan Allen McComas, 40, owner of Pirot’s Towing in San Jacinto. McComas, who also surrendered this afternoon, is charged with one count of offering a bribe to a public officer and two counts of being an aider and abettor in the misappropriation of public funds.

Segawa could not be reached for comment. A woman unloading groceries at his home, who identified herself as his wife, declined to comment this afternoon.
