Based on data released by Police Brigadier General Valeriano De Leon, Nuezca faced two cases of grave misconduct (homicide) in May and December 2019. But the records showed that both were dismissed due to lack of substantial evidence.

In 2016, he also faced serious neglect of duty for failing to attend a court hearing wherein he was supposed to be the prosecution witness in a drug case. However, the case against him was later dropped and closed.

In 2014, he faced less grave neglect of duty for refusing to submit to a drug test and for leaving the testing area without permission or clearance from the NAPOLCOM Inspectors. He faced a 31-day suspension over this case.

In 2013, he also faced grave misconduct over an undisclosed admin case but this was also dropped and closed.

In 2010, he faced a 10-day suspension for undisclosed reasons.

After the list of his administrative cases was released to the media, netizens could not believe that the policeman had gotten away with most of the cases he faced in the past. Everyone hopes that he won’t be able to get away with the double murders this time around.

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra promised to ensure that justice will be served by his department while Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said that they will make sure that Nuezca will be dismissed from police service aside from paying for his crimes.
