A Visalia police officer facing trial for driving while intoxicated has lost her job.
Erica Martinez, 33, who worked at the Police Department for seven years, "is no longer an employee of the city of Visalia," said Sgt. Ozzie Dominguez. He said he could not provide details because it's a personnel matter.
Martinez was arrested Aug. 4, 2013 after her BMW was involved in a solo-vehicle accident in Visalia. No one was injured and she was not in uniform.
She is charged with misdemeanor drunken driving and driving with a blood alcohol level above .15. A trial has been set for July 15 in Tulare County Superior Court.
