Springfield Police Officer Fired

Springfield Acting Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood is announcing that she has fired a city officer who is facing separate charges of child rape and robbery.

Daniel Cintron has been on leave since 2017, when he was indicted for the mugging of a teenager at the Eastfield Mall.

An indictment on the child rape case came later.

Cintron is awaiting a trial in each case.

Clapprood said back in March that she intended to carry out the firing.

The now former officer had been on the force for three years.
