N.J. cops admit deleting arrest record of officer's relative

RANDOLPH, N.J. — Two Randolph police officers admitted in court yesterday that they freed a drunken driving suspect and deleted a computerized record of the arrest after learning the person was related to a fellow cop.

Patrolmen Stephen Kepler, 49, and Shawn Boyhan, 31, avoided prosecution in the case by enrolling in pretrial intervention, a diversionary court program that will result in the dismissal of charges against them if they stay out of trouble for a year. Both men also forfeited their jobs.
