LOS ANGELES, Dec 9 (Reuters) - Eighteen current or former members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department have been charged with corruption and civil rights violations stemming from a probe of misconduct inside the nation's largest county jail system, federal prosecutors said on Monday.

The wide-ranging investigation was continuing, U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr told a news conference. He said 16 of the defendants were arrested on Monday and the two others were expected to turn themselves in shortly. (Reporting by Steve Gorman; Editing by Cynthia Johnston)
