The San Antonio Police Department detective accused of mishandling 130 special victims unit cases has been fired.
In a statement from City Manager Sheryl Sculley, she said Detective Kenneth Valdez was given due process following state and federal law.
The city revealed the mishandling of the cases last week, saying Valdez was responsible for not following through with these cases.
She has promised the city attorney’s office will review each case.
