[NYPD] Deputy Inspector Ordonez allowed to keep job after domestic incidents, nudging him out slowly, gently
So they say.
...First, he pleaded guilty to departmental charges for failing to report a domestic fight with his wife. The next year, Ordoñez was hit with charges for "improperly using" an NYPD auto to follow his wife...

In a rare disciplinary move, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has stripped a top cop of his post, demoted him and forced him to retire after the commander allegedly used his NYPD vehicle to spy on his detective wife during their divorce. The allegations against Deputy Inspector Julio Ordoñez, who apparently was trying to uncover dirt on his wife, Tammie, were considered serious enough that they were examined by prosecutors, sources told The Post. But the DA determined that the NYPD should handle the matter departmentally. Ordoñez, who joined the NYPD in 1986, was wounded in the thumb in a 1988 friendly-fire incident. He ultimately became the No. 2 cop in the NYPD's Housing Bureau in Manhattan. But in 2007, his career began to teeter -- just as his marriage was also crumbling. First, he pleaded guilty to departmental charges for failing to report a domestic fight with his wife. The next year, Ordoñez was hit with charges for "improperly using" an NYPD auto to follow his wife. Ordoñez forfeited 53 days of time off and was forced to make $688 restitution to the department. Kelly offered him an opportunity to retire immediately as a deputy inspector. But Ordoñez chose to stay on the department payroll, using up eight months of vacation and comp time. When that time ran out this year, Ordoñez, 47, was demoted to captain and then forced out of New York's Finest. [LINK]
