    VA An undercover sting leads to the arrest of a Petersburg sheriff's deputy

    I just had to post this.

    I read this on my lunch break today, & then promptly chucked my food.

    This is local news for me.


    Corporal Vernard Bailey is facing several charges -- including two counts of attempted rape and sexual battery against minors.
    Bailey has been employed with the Petersburg Sheriff's Office for nearly three decades -- supervising inmates at the Petersburg Jail Annex.

    "He's a veteran. He's been here for over 26 years and it's certainly nothing anybody would have expected, " said Petersburg Sheriff, Vanessa Crawford.
    "Good employee -- he'd always be here when he was supposed to be here and he did what he was supposed to do," said Crawford.
    Police say a search of Bailey's home revealed evidence supporting the charges against him.
    Yes, he has since been fired after he admitted to the crimes....
