Police Lt. Tim Muzny, the supervisor of the department's sex crimes unit, said Thursday he could not comment on an ongoing investigation. He referred questions to the department's spokesmen, who also said they could not comment.
Box said he has not spoken with Martinez's accuser and neither has the family.
Martinez, who was honored last year as a top foster parent, said he expects to be cleared in the investigation. But he said he is considering legal action against the city once it concludes.
“It has screwed up my life, and it seems like they don't care,” he said.
Martinez has not been charged and remains on paid administrative leave from his job.
