Prince George’s Police Officer Ivan Mendez Indicted for Misconduct in Office

UPPER MARLBORO, MD – Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy announced today that a Prince George’s County police officer, Corporal Ivan Mendez, has been indicted for misconduct in office for disclosing sensitive and confidential information about an ongoing police investigation with a commercial sex worker in 2018.

"My Office has a zero-tolerance policy for corruption by public officials who unlawfully violate the public trust. I take this very seriously because the people of Prince George’s County deserve to be represented by people who operate with the highest degree of professionalism and integrity. That is why I created a stand-alone public integrity unit to prosecute these types of cases to the fullest extent of the law. There is no excuse for corruption and this case will be treated no differently. Corruption of any kind will not be tolerated in Prince George’s County,” said State’s Attorney Braveboy.

An indictment contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
