A woman police officer has been demoted for sending sexually-explicit video of herself from her personal cell to her boyfriend, a lower-ranking policeman.
Diana Lopez was demoted to the rank of lieutenant by the Tucson Police Dept for breaching department regulations and its code of ethics. Assistant Chief Kathleen Robinson explained that Lopez had undermined "her credibility as a commander" and harmed "the reputation and mission of the Tucson Police Department," according to documents quoted by the Arizona Daily Star.
The case came to light after Lopez's boyfriend showed the video and images to other police officers. Lopez herself is now reportedly considering a lawsuit against the city. Her lawyer explained that her case would be based on "constitutional issues over lawful off-duty behavior and violation of privacy."
