(Scroll down for video) A police officer was suspended from his job after publicizing a video, showing him performing a sexual act on a dog, according to police in Texas.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office said that they have arrested 30-year-old Andrew C. Sustaita Jr., after being accused of having sex with a dog and possessing child porn.
Sustaita was charged with one count of obscenity. He was booked into the Harris County Jail, and his bail has been set at $30,000.
If convicted, Sustaita faces up to 10 years in prison.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said that Sustaita was a six-year veteran of the force, most recently assigned to the Crime Control Division.
Sustaita was immediately relieved of duty upon arrest.
Sustaita was identified as a suspect during the course of an investigation managed by the Sheriff’s Office High Tech Crime Unit.
Investigators were contacted regarding obscene material originating from an account in Harris County. Through their investigation, it was determined that Sustaita was involved in producing obscene material online.
“The possession of obscene and illicit material is made even more troubling when a Sheriff’s Office employee is found to be involved,” stated Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.
When police searched the officer’s computer, they found child porn, showing sexual acts involving girls as young as 4 years old in addition to the video that showed Sustaita having sex with a small dog.
