SANTA FE (KRQE) - A Santa Fe police detective accused of raping another officer will not face charges.
The District Attorney’s office says there was not enough evidence to bring charges in the case.
Last month, the female officer said the detective attacked and raped her.
The woman has since submitted her resignation from the department.
While the criminal case has been dropped, there is still an internal affairs investigation.
"The internal investigation is currently ongoing. To my understanding, we just received a copy of the New Mexico State Police report and the investigation will proceed,” said Chief Raymond J. Rael.
The detective, who's been with the Santa Fe Police Department for 10 years, remains on duty but is not allowed to handle any cases until the internal affairs investigation is complete.
