State District Judge Matthew Sandoval sentenced Justina Romero, 29, to 18 months of probation, pursuant to a plea agreement reached with prosecutors, the Optic said.

10/11/11 — Two CYFD Workers Gone After Criminal Charges

By Juan Carlos Rodriguez/Journal Staff Writer

Two New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department employees who were arrested this summer are no longer working for the department.

Justina Romero, who worked as a caseworker dealing directly with families, was placed on leave after she was arrested in August for allegedly having a drug-fueled party with several minors.

She is charged with child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor but has pleaded not guilty.

Richard Bradberry, a former guard at the Youth Diagnostic and Development Center in Albuquerque, was placed on leave after allegedly groping underage girls at the juvenile lockup.

He is charged with criminal sexual contact with a minor, voyeurism, false imprisonment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He has also pleaded not guilty.

CYFD spokesman Enrique Carlos Knell said he could not say whether Romero and Bradberry were fired or if they resigned, due to restrictions on discussing personnel matters.

He said in light of several CYFD employees getting in trouble this year, the department is planning to roll out a new code of conduct in the near future.

“At CYFD, we work to protect and keep kids safe, and we work to support safe and healthy families. We won’t tolerate anything that detracts from that mission. … and the new code of conduct will help support the work they do.”
