Prostitution Case is Strike Two for San Bernardino County’s HR Boss

Andrew Lamberto’s pleading guilty to agreeing to engage in prostitution has been met with “significant discipline” by the county and leaves him no more wiggle room as one more issue will lead to his termination.

Lamberto has been San Bernardino County’s Director of Human Resource since 2005.

That is from a statement passed down by San Bernardino County CEO Greg Devereaux last Friday.

In pleading guilty to the misdemeanor charge, Lamberto was sentenced to 10 days of CalTrans work in lieu of jail, three years of informal probation, and submitting to AIDS testing and education.

Lamberto issued a statement of his own and took responsibility, saying “There is no acceptable excuse for my behavior. What I did was wrong, and I accept full responsibility for my actions. I deeply apologize to the CEO, the Board, my fellow county employees, and the people of San Bernardino County. Public service is a privilege, and I will continue to work hard to earn the confidence of those I am fortunate enough to serve.”
