LOS ANGELES – A 45-year-old Los Angeles County Sheriff’s
deputy has been charged in a felony case for his alleged sexual
involvement with a teenage girl.
Deputy District Attorney Bradley McCartt of the Sex Crimes
Division said Kenneth Alexander (dob 6/30/66) is charged with one
count of oral copulation of a person under 16 and two counts of lewd
act upon a child age 15.
The defendant is expected to appear for arraignment on Nov. 10 in
Department 144 of Airport Court. He is charged in case No. SA079008.
Alexander, who was charged in a felony complaint for arrest
warrant on Oct. 19, turned himself in to authorities this morning at
the Sheriff’s Carson station and immediately posted $115,000 bail,

The defendant was assigned to the Sheriff’s Marina Del Rey
station at the time of the alleged crimes. The abuse – which
purportedly began after the deputy responded to an investigation at
the victim’s home – took place between Aug. 10, 2010 and Feb. 28,
2011, according to the charging document.
If convicted as charged, Alexander faces a maximum prison term of
four years, four months.
