Detective’s resignation prompts child case reviews

LAKEWOOD — Lakewood police are reopening more than 200 cases involving child victims following the resignation of a detective accused of failure to properly investigate complaints of child abuse, sexual assaults and other crimes.

Police say former detective Justin LoBurgio worked in Lakewood’s Crimes Against Children Unit from 2006 to 2010 before being moved back to patrol. LoBurgio declined to respond to the allegations.

According to the Denver Post, the review has so far turned up between 35 and 50 cases that required additional investigation.
