LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy is denying allegations that he had sex with a teenage relative.

County prosecutors say 34-year-old Deputy Orlando Denison pleaded not guilty Friday to two sex-related charges, both of them felonies. He faces up to three years and eight months in state prison if convicted.

Prosecutors allege the offenses occurred in July 2010 and involve a female relative who was 16 at the time.

Denison was arrested at his Long Beach home Thursday. Bail was set for $100,000.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said the department has begun the process of relieving Denison without pay.
