Ohio Deputy Fired for Lying About Sex With Informant

November 11, 2010  | 

A Montgomery County (Ohio) Sheriff's detective has been fired, after evidence came to light showing he had lied about a sexual relationship with an informant, reports the Dayton Daily News.

Deputy Det. Steve Gardiner, a 15-year veteran, had spent the past two years in the sheriff's drug unit assigned to a DEA task force.

Here's an exerpt:

Gardiner began a sexual relationship with the informant in the spring of 2009 and used his "covert identification" to rent motel rooms and his duty car to "take her on dates." When asked, Gardiner said the relationship ended in the summer of 2009. Investigators, however, found evidence that showed the couple "engaged in sex ... as late as April 24, 2010."

Hey at least he admitted it. The jerk I was with lied about everything and put it on public docket. Now I get death threats because of what he said. So much for protect and to serve. I'll never trust a cop again or anyone for that matter. He did the worst things to me. He used my childhood abuse to exploit me and he's such a coward and can't face me or say a word to me. Afraid he'll lose his wife's millions in inheritance money. He sold his morals for money. How pathetic!
