Former Caldwell School Resource Officer Sentenced
(Boise) – Reuben Delgadillo, a former Caldwell police officer and school resource officer, was sentenced today to three to 10 years in prison for felony injury to a child, Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said. Third District Judge Thomas Ryan also ordered Delgadillo to pay $5,000 in civil penalties. The court suspended the prison sentence and retained jurisdiction for 365 days.
Delgadillo, 27, pleaded guilty on June 1, 2010, to one count of injury to a child. He was employed with the Caldwell Police Department and assigned to the Caldwell School District as a school resource officer. By pleading guilty, Delgadillo admitted that while serving on a school expulsion board, he developed a sexual relationship with a male student while mentoring the child.
The Attorney General’s Special Prosecutions Unit conducted the prosecution at the request of the Canyon County Prosecutor’s Office. Deputy Attorney General Chris Topmiller prosecuted the case.
