When a couple of men who had worked together as law enforcement officers in the San Francisco Bay area's Contra Costa County were accused of stealing drugs from evidence lockers for sale on the streets, all hell broke loose. Now one is accusing the other of starting a brothel in a massage parlor, protecting it from legal prosecution, and closing down its competitors.

Former state narcotics agent Norman Wielsch, 50, who has since resigned from the force, has pleaded not guilty to all charges, both drug-related and prostitution-related, based on evidence provided by Christopher Butler, 49, a former colleague who is also no longer with the force and is now working as a private investigator.
