A 22-year police department veteran in San Antonio, Texas, is in big trouble for having a relationship with a convicted prostitute.

Officer Mark H. Walaski has been suspended indefinitely for “consorting with persons of ill repute,” the Houston Chronicle reported, citing police records.

“Officer Walaski’s actions constitute a serious behavioral infraction which does not align with the ethical standards expected of every SAPD officer. As a result, he was issued an indefinite suspension,” the department said in a statement.

In July 2016, Walaski met Tracy Helmke, a woman who had an active warrant for a prostitution charge. Walaski allowed Helmke to live with him, and the two began dating.

At one point, after Helmke was arrested on two separate prostitution charges, Walaski paid $530 to bail her out of jail.

Also, on two separate occasions, the officer was involved in a disturbance with the woman, which he failed to report to a supervisor.

Then in March, Walaski signed a six-month lease for an apartment for Helmke. Around that time, she pleaded no contest to the two prostitution charges, the newspaper reported.

The indefinite suspension is tantamount to being fired, LawOfficer.com reported.

Officer Walaski is appealing his latest suspension through arbitration, his attorney, Ben Sifuentes, told San Antonio’s KSAT-TV.

“The chief’s letter of suspension for Officer Walaski contains factual errors,” the attorney said in a statement. “We are confident this will be proven.”

Walaski was previously suspended this year for discarding what appeared to be synthetic marijuana following a drug arrest, failing to activate his body camera during another arrest, and not completing proper reports for either incident, the newspaper reported.

His suspension gave the department of some 2,100 officers a total of about 45 suspensions this year, the newspaper reported.
