Santa Barbara Psychologist Pleads Guilty to Sex Crimes

Santa Barbara Psychologist Pleads Guilty to Sex Crimes

A former Santa Barbara County psychologist was convicted of sexual exploitation and other felony sex crimes and pleaded guilty Wednesday to a new felony allegation of sexual exploitation by a psychotherapist or drug abuse counselor.

Fernando Cordero, 66, was convicted by a jury last month on four felony counts, including Sexual Battery, Sexual Exploitation by a psychotherapist or drug abuse counselor and two counts of attempting to dissuade a witness from reporting a crime after he had been released on bail following his arrest in November 2007.

Cordero has lost his license to practice psychology, as the California Board of Psychology obtained a license suspension for him in January 2008.
