Espanola cop accused of kissing underage girl - real story is who let him use the police exit?

Police Officer Orlando Cordova
From - By: Chris Ramirez, KOB Eyewitness News 4; Staff  - An Espanola Police Department officer assigned to Espanola Valley High School as a resource officer is accused of kissing an underage student. On Friday, Orlando Cordova was at the Santa Fe District Courthouse to face a judge about the allegations. The judge upheld a protective order that forces Cordova to stay away from the girl. KOB Eyewitness News attempted to get reaction from Cordova as he left the courthouse. But, it appeared he was allowed special access for a quick exit through a door provided law enforcement. This happened despite a judge order for Cordova to turn in his badge. Santa Fe County Sheriff Robert Garcia said Cordova should never have been allowed through the exit. "That whole area is a secure area and that door is monitored and controlled by deputies at the front," he said. "The deputy who let him out had no business doing what he did. Again, I have concerns. No one should be coming in or out of that secure area unless they are bringing in inmates." Inmates are held in cells right next to the door. Garcia noticed an unauthorized female officer from a different jurisdiction pushing buttons on the door to let Cordova out. "I can guarantee you, this will not happen again. I can honestly tell you people have questions to answer and we'll get to the bottom of it," he said. Read more
