Sorrentino worked in commission with Cendoya at Ursec and on June 1, 2020, when he no longer belonged to the institution, he entered to tour the offices, check a piece of furniture and destroy official documentation in a paper shredding machine.

This led to one of the three crimes of abuse of functions that the Justice charged against Cendoya and the former president of the unit, Gabriel Lombide.among other officials.
