CDCR Lt. Pleads No Dispute to Contacting Minor for Sexual Act

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation lieutenant pleaded no contest Friday to contacting a minor with the intent to perform a sexual act.

Jose Donaciano Valdez was arrested during an online sex sting in April in which he tried to meet someone he believed was a 13-year-old girl when he was actually a police officer, authorities said. He is set for sentencing on December 7.

A total of 19 people were arrested on suspicion of committing various crimes during the operation, which lasted from April 20 to 23, officials said.
