COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado Springs homicide detective accused of tampering with evidence in a kidnapping case and lying about having a sexual relationship with the victim is no longer on the job.

The Gazette (https://bit.ly/1jsvo8e ) reported Monday that Paul Patton resigned Oct. 1. A police spokeswoman wouldn’t comment on the case against him.

Patton, a 15-year veteran, was placed on administrative leave in July. Last month, the lawyer for the man charged in the kidnapping case asked for the case to be dismissed because of alleged misconduct by Patton and a prosecutor.

Patton is scheduled to enter a plea in the case on Oct. 19.
