Minnesota Officer Faces Sentencing on ID Theft Conviction

February 02, 2015  | 

A St. Paul, Minn., police officer who was convicted of identity theft is set to be sentenced Monday.

The 38-year-old female school resource officer was convicted last year of using someone else's identity to funnel money to her boyfriend, who authorities say is a gang member in prison.

While police were investigating a shooting, they discovered the officer had a relationship with Ramone Smaller, who was imprisoned after pleading guilty to third-degree attempted murder, ABC 5 reports. Authorities say she sent him $1,500 under a different name.

A few facts left off in the above article:
Ruby Diaz, School Resource Officer was age 31, Raymone Smaller, a member of the GOTTA HAVIT gang of St Paul, MN, would have been only 12-13 years old when they met at Humbolt HS.
Supposedly__ she had no_ contact with him for years and waited 8 years before starting a romantic relationship with him? Seriously? Not.
Smaller has been incarcerated at St Cloud prison serving a 6 yr. for aiding/attempted murder until more evidence came along to recently charge him with an additional 10 counts of attempted murder/ his 40 cal. drive by shootings. Anything less than 5 years for Diaz (ID theft and aiding in the material support of gang activity) and a life sentence for Smaller would be too soon.

Good example of what happens when a department lowers its hiring standards to accomodate unqualified people.
