Arapahoe County deputy suspected of child sex assault

Deputy was arrested by Pueblo County Sheriff's Office over weekend

Posted

An Arapahoe County sheriff's deputy who worked at the county jail was arrested over the weekend by the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office on suspicion of child sexual assault, according to an Oct. 30 news release by the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office.

Deputy John Beck is a non-certified deputy, meaning he only has authority within the jail, said Julie Brooks, spokeswoman for the Arapahoe sheriff's office. Beck is facing three counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in position of trust, and he was immediately placed on leave without pay, the release said.

“I am disgusted by the nature of these charges,” said Dave Walcher, Arapahoe sheriff, in the release. “Should the allegations prove to be true, his actions have not only forever impacted the lives of the victims; they have also cast a shadow on the great work our staff does every day in service to our community.”

Beck has been employed with the sheriff's office since January 2009, and he has had no interaction with juveniles during that employment, the release said.

The Pueblo County case remains an active investigation, the release said, and no additional information or agency photo was released.
