Deputy booked on suspicion of having sex with girl in San Bernardino County
A San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy who was booked on suspicion of having sex with an underage girl has been placed on leave, authorities said Tuesday.
Nathan Gastineau was released on $25,000 bail and was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation, the department said.
A 10-year veteran deputy, Gastineau had been assigned to the Highland station.
He was booked Friday on suspicion of lewd acts with a minor after the department received a report that a deputy may have had sexual relations with a girl, according to authorities.
