(Scroll down for video) A corrections officer in Florida, lost his job after it was discovered that he was in a relationship with his girlfriend and her teenage daughter.
35-year-old Leith Sullivan of Cape Canaveral, was arrested and charged with sexual battery.
Police said that Sullivan, who worked at the Okeechobee Correctional Institute, has admitted to having sex with the 13-year-old girl for four months.
According to police, Sullivan also admitted that he knew that what he was doing was wrong.
However, he defended his actions by saying that he never forced himself on the girl and that he “was in love with her.”
The victim and her mother moved to three different counties in Florida, during the months that she was sexually abused by her mother’s boyfriend.
The girl finally came forward when Sullivan had sex with her without a condom.
Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith said it is possible that other family members were involved, and additional charges may be filed in the case.
Sullivan also served in the U.S. National Guard.
