Greeley, Colo. (AP) A Weld County Sheriff's deputy has been arrested on suspicion of having a consensual sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.
Landon Greatheart, 32, was in custody Monday.
Greatheart, who's been with the Sheriff since July 2003, is accused of developing a relationship with the girl in July while he and two adult females became temporary guardians of the child, Sheriff's spokeswoman Margie Martinez said. Greatheart faces a charge of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust, and an obscenities charge from information sent over a cell phone.
No number was listed for Greatheart and it was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
