A Florida deputy was busted after allegedly trying to get nude photos from an undercover officer who he thought was a 15-year-old girl, authorities said.
Charlotte County Deputy Marty Allen, 41, was arrested Sunday on charges of lewd and lascivious conduct, news station WBBH reported.
The undercover agent spoke to Allen online for 10 months — with some of the conversations occurring while the deputy was on duty, authorities said.
During those conversations, the subject matter would turn sexual, authorities said.
Allen asked for nude pictures from the “teen” and for her to move in with him, authorities said.
Investigators set up a location for Allen to meet the teen — and arrested him.
He was placed on administrative leave without pay after the sting.
“Deputy Allen has broken his oath and that sacred trust that is expected as a law enforcement officer, instead, choosing to prey upon those he swore to serve and protect. This cannot and will not be tolerated,” Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummel said.
