Deputy Tampa Police Chief John Cuesta was a 17 year veteran of the department. His police record was excellent. While working on the force, Cuesta also became an attorney. WFTS repeatedly found Cuesta spending hours and hours at a private law office in the middle of his tax funded work day. On his police vacation time Cuesta was handling a case in court which could conflict with his police position. Fellow police officers came to WFTS to publicly claim for the first time ever that they had often seen Cuesta shortchange his police duties while attending law school. (August 7, 8, 13; Sept. 6, 1996)
