A police officer was arrested, charged and convicted of sexual assault after having sex with a teen girl and sending sexual messages to a 17-year-old girl, prosecutors in California said.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced that the former Irwindale Police Department officer who was accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl, was sentenced to two years and eight months in state prison.

28-year-old Daniel Camerano was also ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. He was remanded into custody immediately after sentencing.

Camerano, who was an advisor to the department’s Explorer Program, had a sexual relationship with the 14-year-old girl for seven months.

The eight-year police veteran also admitted to sending sexually suggestive text messages to a 17-year-old female Explorer.

Camerano resigned from the Irwindale Police Department after the allegations surfaced.

He pleaded no contest to three felony counts, including using a minor for sex acts, oral copulation of a person under 16 years old and contact with a minor for a sexual offense.
