I never said cops are corrupt, I just said that they hide behind the badge like a bunch of punks. And no I never do intend to call on a cop I will handle anything that needs to be handled.

Yeah, no doubt this guy was in idiot for putting himself in a that position but I don't believe he sexually assaulted this lady. Here story changed on several occasions and IMO she was pissed at her hubby and trying to get back at him. This guy deserves to loose his job but not to go to jail for assult.

Everyone has a right to an opinion and I fully agree with Vago! RIVERA was on duty!!! We are paying him to work NOT get personal pleasure!!! He is not the only one in the EPPD abusing working hours to have sex. Believe me I rather die then call EPPD, THEY ARE CORRUPTED. I HAVE PROOF!! An EPPD detective was given an option to resign or go to trial for his wrong doing. Must be nice to have options!! EPPD can get away with DISRESPECTING, RAPING, ABUSING WOMEN!! WOMAN OF EP START REPORTING THEM!!!!!

Congratulations Zake. You are guilty of a terrible decision, not a crime, and you acknowledged it. Most reasonable individuals and the jury that heard the case believed you. We were praying for you and again, congratulations.

but you have to keep in mind that there are a lot of people out there that try to get some benefit over somebodyelses tragedy keep in mind the case of Michael Jackson vs the kid who accused him of touching him and show himself naked.. rig any bell

With a good lawyer even O.J. Simpson got away with murder. This still does not dismiss his behavior to me. Had him or any other officer done the same to a relative of mine, this would not be the last of it. This guy is a punk with a badge and a good lawyer like half the cops in this city.

shut it VAGO she's a skank, she's done this with all other cops and firefighers...your an idiot for saying that all cops are corrupt that's totally incalled for...next time don't call them when you need them you can just stay and rot!!!!!!!

Wow! this a$$ got away, he needs to be sent to prison..This is not fair just because he is a cop he got away..Ive seen this guy at the O.P. all the time, so he is not innocent at all!! He puts his rosary in shame! yeah shes in fault too but who cares that how she is, she doesnt know better and he does...stupid judge....
