View Comments

FONTANA (AP) — A Rialto police officer has been charged with having sex with an underage female relative.

Bail is set at $2 million for 50-year-old Rialto police Officer Theodore Fernandes, who has been charged with 20 sex counts involving a juvenile. Fernandez was arrested on Tuesday at his Fontana home.

Fontana police Sgt. Billy Green says the allegations surfaced in February and an arrest warrant was issued on Monday.

There are no details about the victim, who is now an adult, or the dates the alleged sex crimes took place.

Green says investigators do not believe there are additional victims.
