Guy Cruz is no longer a probation officer for the 4th Judicial District, and neither he is a high school tennis coach, the next gig he took up. But the Pueblo resident is in big trouble for allegedly threatening a parolee with jail or a loss of access to her son if she didn't get horizontal with him -- something she reportedly proved was happening via use of a video camera.

According to a police report obtained by the Colorado Springs Gazette, the woman in question -- who'd wound up on parole as a result of a past drug-possession beef -- was assigned to Cruz in February of last year.

Any positive urinalysis would have sent her behind bars for an extended stretch, so when she was subsequently spotted at a bar after an established curfew, she feared the worst. But no: After she proved she hadn't been drinking, Cruz chose not to bust her.

Did he have ulterior motives? The woman told police he showed up at her house one July day with oral sex on his mind -- and this act led to more trysts at hotel rooms, not to mention plenty of phone calls throughout the day. She suggested that the tension caused by this relationship prompted a return to booze and meth. Cruz didn't report her for these infractions, either, but he allegedly made it clear that if she tried to end their get-togethers, he could always tell a judge about her lapses, as well as prevent her from seeing her son.

How did she get out from under this situation? The Gazette reports that she captured one of her sessions with Cruz on video, then turned to a fellow parolee for advice. This second woman shared the tale with her own probation officer, who in turn ran the allegation up the chain.

At this point, there's no telling if Cruz's decision to resign as a probation officer last September had anything to do with this chain of events. Afterward, he signed on as tennis coach at Pueblo's Central High -- but he was put on administrative leave last month "at the recommendation of Colorado Springs Police," writes the Gazette.

Cruz surrendered to authorities this week and was released on a $25,000 bond -- raising the prospect, if the charges against him are proved, that he may be dealing with a probation officer of his own in the future.

Here's a larger look at Cruz's booking photo.

The only thing the video proved was that Mr.Cruz had sex with his client.  The rest of this nonsense is based entirely on hear say.  It is appalling when a  "bag ho" is given this level of credibility, no questions asked, to accusations I KNOW to be false allowing his life to be destroyed as is everything that winds up in a tweaker's path of destruction, in pursuit of meth, regardless of who gets hurt, they take no prisoners.

I was a client of Mr. Cruz, I am far more attractive than she is AND I had more violations than just relapse, my husband was in prison and I lived alone.  Mr. Cruz helped me and is a HUGE part of my successfully completing intensive supervised probation.

 Relapse (sadly) is a part of recovery, professionals know this, sending a client to prison is not the P.O.'s power alone and involves other professionals, ultimately the judge decides who goes to prison.  Mr. Cruz helped me get into a rehabilitation center after I relapsed twice.  Mr Cruz gave me the time to get FIVE  driving under suspension charges handled in a manner that would not violate me, when my husband was released and he had the misfortune of Veronica Karmody standing in for his P.O.who was on vacation, on 4/20/10 she thought she was going to make numerous busts and busted into our home unannounced when my husband was not even home, tearing our home apart to find paraphenalia from years gone by in an old suitcase we obviously did not know was there. V. K. called Mr. Cruz intent on getting him to put me in jail and he told her to go pound sand that he not she would handle my situation, I would not be surprised if she were the "secret" P.O. in assisting this lying bag ho up the chain of command with her own agenda, because I have never seen any level of law enforcement give a tweaker credibility in the slightest degree and given what was at stake for Mr. Cruz, the reliability of the so called victim and her motive should of been questioned and backed up with PROOF of blackmail and demand for sex by a person in power, not a shred of evidence was provided.

  The video ONLY proved he had sex with her not the demented accusations of jail or denying her her son which cry out tweaker scheming for the stupidity of it all.  I have no doubt in my mind it was she who initiated sex with him, with no offense intended to males in general, he is a man and bag ho's use sex for drugs and manipulation.  What makes this situation any different?  How would anyone know Mr. Cruz had oral sex on his mind UNLESS she put it there?  How could anyone responsibly report what anyone had on their mind, not a fact factually substantiated or proven who initiated sex in exchange for leniency for her to do the drugs not be denied her "son" which places second to drugs if that, using her child for pity is pure tweaker, as lame as it gets!  Alas she was not getting the reward of meth, therefore, did not find access to her son or her freedom as rewarding and came up with this scheme to get her a-- out of a situation with no consequence what so ever!  How messed up is that? If she would have gone to jail for the violations that forced her to have sex with Mr. Cruz, well, Why didn't she? This bag ho lied, obstructed, committed perjury and destroyed every aspect of Mr. Cruz's life for the sole motivation being taking meth and getting away with it!  If that is not a crime, WHAT IS?  I question the integrity of the cops and p.o. involved with setting him up and arresting him based on the word of a tweaker's lies, remember the only proof is the video which only proves consentual sex not rape not blackmail not for money, she offered sex for her gain.

  The c.s.p.d. has some nerve advising Mr. Cruz's employer of the charges against him.  Where do they get off? Are they the morality police? OBVIOUSLY NOT!  DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY! Screams VENDETTA!  Mr. Cruz is a fair man and i would put my life on ulterior motives! 

  I wish Mr. Cruz would have taken this to trial.  I and countless others would have testified in his defense with PROOF of his character, not the word of a bag ho which wouldn't even stand up in a court of law, if it were even allowed, at least the jury would decide.  Mr. Cruz opted out ONLY to spare his family and himself the shame this scumbag ho perpetuated in full tweaker style! 

   Mr. Cruz has a beautiful wife and five adorable boys he is a family man, but , he is a man and bag ho's can be very persuasive in using sex to manipulate for what they want, it's to bad he didn't have a bag of dope because the accusation of holding her son or taking her freedom obviously wasn't worth keeping a deal in line with the "so called" blackmail!

  Do the math people!  This injustice is worthy of a full on investigation and charges against her. Meanwhile, report facts, not what was on someones mind, unless you report for a gossip rag!
