I commend CSLEA attorney Dave De La Riva for the great job he did on righting a grave injustice in the case of Agent Resendez and thank CSLEA attorney and former Special Agent Jim Vitko for his assistance in making it happen."

On September 21, the State Personnel Board approved a decision by Administrative Law Judge Cynthia Z'berg Lebov modifying the dismissal of Special Agent Victor Resendez to just a four-month suspension.
At the time of his dismissal from DOJ, Resendez was an 18-year veteran. Among other things, Judge Lebov found that the dismissal was too harsh a penalty in light of the fact that DOJ was unable to prove several of the charges against Resendez, including dishonesty, incompetency, inefficiency, or willful disobedience.
...
The dismissal of Resendez followed an investigation based in part on alleged "rumors" of overtime abuse. After spending several man-hours pouring over hundreds of pages of documents and interviewing several witnesses, the investigation yielded no proof of such abuse.
However, DOJ discovered that an entry in Resendez's diary did not accurately reflect his work activities over a 24-hour span of time. After hearing the testimony of Resendez and his supervisors, Judge Lebov concluded, in part, that the inaccurate diary entry was not intended to deceive anyone.
...
In fact, Resendez worked the total number of hours he claimed in his diary, just not during the exact times reflected in his diary.
The judge noted that Resendez could have profited by requesting overtime wages for the work he actually performed during the aforementioned span of time and could have requested per diem, but he did not.
In coming to its decision, the court also recognized that Resendez is a highly decorated Agent who was awarded the DOJ Medal of Valor in 1994, after saving the life of a kidnapping victim, and, shortly before he was dismissed, was selected to work on a DOJ unit whose job it is to monitor and apprehend some of the state's most violent criminals.
A key component of the decision is that DOJ committed a Skelly violation. According to Skelly v. State Personnel Board, an employee is entitled to the materials upon which the decision-maker relied upon to come to its decision to take action against the employee.
In this case, the diary entries were relied upon by DOJ to come to its decision to charge Resendez with dishonesty and to dismiss him from his duties. Unfortunately, DOJ failed to serve Resendez with a copy of his diary at the time he was dismissed. The remedy for a Skelly violation is back pay from the date of the dismissal to the date of the decision. Resendez was dismissed effective December 18, 2008, meaning Resendez is due approximately 21 months of back pay and benefits due to the error.

Victor Resendez, a member of the DOJ, said the area around Rumsey is a popular location for growing marijuana because of it's vast and remote land- a good area for growing plants, as well as a place with many escape routes.

"They seek out places they are familiar with," he said of the growers - only 27 have been arrested this year.
