LOS ANGELES (AP) —  Prosecutors have charged a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy with sex crimes against a girl he met through the Explorer program for youth interested in law enforcement careers.

The district attorney’s office said Thursday that 36-year-old Manuel Enrique Perallon Jr. is charged with one felony count of oral copulation of a person under 18 and misdemeanor child molesting.

Prosecutors say Perallon oversaw the Explorer program at the Cerritos Station and met the victim when she was 16. The crimes allegedly occurred a year ago.

The deputy was arrested Wednesday and has been released on $70,000 bond. Arraignment is scheduled for May 16.

If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.

A telephone message left for Perallon wasn’t immediately returned.
