Lewiston police officer’s certification upheld

lpd_patchA Lewiston Police officer accused of sexual harassment by fellow employees will keep his law enforcement certification after a vote by the Idaho Peace Officer Standards and Training Council.

A hearings officer had previously recommended that Officer Richard Fuentes be de-certified by POST.

The allegations were brought against Fuentes following an off-duty Halloween party in October 2010 at the Lewiston/Nez Perce County Regional Airport.

Fuentes remained employed full-time with the department during the investigation.
