2021 Accusations towards Will Espero
In April 2021, former state Sen. Will Espero commented on a Facebook post, calling for body-worn camera footage to be released in an officer-involved shooting death of a Honolulu teenager. Desiderio replied, claiming that Espero had previously dodged a police raid while at a massage parlor.
On April 29, 2021, Espero filed a complaint with the department.
On September 10, 2021, Espero received a letter from the department, noting that Desiderio had received "firm and appropriate action". The department clarified that Desiderio was not suspended, but likely received a written reprimand or counseling.
