From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:
A veteran city police detective, placed on administrative leave last year following complaints he had sent unwanted sexually explicit texts to a crime victim, has been reinstated.
Police Chief Armando Perez confirmed Wednesday that Detective David Garcia, a member of the department for 18 years, is back in the detective bureau after being suspended without pay for 30 days.
The chief added that Garcia used bankable holiday time for the suspension.
“This is the last chance he gets,” the chief said. “If he messes up he is done. I will not tolerate this kind of behavior from my officers.”
But Bridgeport lawyer, Robert Berke, who represents the female crime victim said the suspension “Appears to be a rather minor sanction for the conduct.”
