I would like to start by saying that I have never received due process by the City of Dublin during this investigation. I was never advised of the allegations, never asked to give a statement and never allowed to see the statements given, which resulted in me not being able to respond.

Furthermore, regarding the statements from my fellow officers that I recently read online concerning Chief Gaitan and I having an affair are flat out lies. Thirteen years I have kept silent, I am married and have two beautiful children and I am not going to stand by and let my good name get tarnished anymore. This is a direct assault on my privacy, attack against my integrity and it is character assassination.

These false, malicious rumors intended to hurt Constable Gaitanís reputation and mine are completely out of line and unacceptable. I have contacted a lawyer to see what can be done about this slander and to begin an investigation into the illegally leaked, sealed Dublin PD personnel files made available to the public. I intend to follow through to the fullest extent that the law will allow to restore my reputation as an upstanding, respected and credible officer.
