South Carolina deputy caught in department’s own undercover child sex sting operation, sheriff says
https://www.foxnews.com/us/deputy-ar...ting-operation

"A South Carolina sheriff says he's “sick to his stomach” after one of his own deputies was busted -- by his department -- in an undercover child sex sting operation.
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced Tuesday that Derek Vandenham, 34, was “working on-duty, in my car, in my uniform” last week when he was taken into custody as part of Operation Relentless Guardian. Vandenham “was communicating to have sex with a 15-year-old,” Lott said, and he then showed up at a property where officers were waiting to arrest him. He has since been fired.
“That was something that made me sick to my stomach to know that one of my deputies that I trusted and that we put out here in this community was one of these monsters,” Lott added...
...Vandenham has been charged with second degree attempted criminal sexual conduct with a minor and solicitation of a minor, according to The State newspaper. It added that his bond was set at $10,000."

What is he going to say? Something stupid like, "Nobody told me there was a sting going on! This is entrapment!"

I'll bet.

Despicable.

While putting aside the idea that he was an LEO, to do so while in the uniform or his position makes it all the worse.
