Two months after the San Antonio Police Department fired a detective who, it said, did not properly investigate more than 130 sex crimes cases assigned to him, Kenneth Valdez received a second indefinite suspension from a separate investigation.

Documents obtained by The Defenders show Valdez was given the additional disciplinary action Jan. 9 .

The new indefinite suspension stems from incidents that occurred before it was discovered Valdez was not investigating sex crimes cases assigned to him.

The notice said Valdez disobeyed orders and did not have permission to engage in outside employment. Specifically, it said:

Valdez was initiallly fired after the department learned in October that he had not properly investigated cases assigned to him in the Special Victims Unit, which includes sex crimes.
