Although details haven’t been released, Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew C. Sustaita Jr. has been arrested after he was caught “producing obscene material online.”
Sustaita was caught after HCSO investigators from the High Tech Crime Unit were contacted about someone uploading a video involving bestiality from a sheriff’s department computer.
The video reportedly shows him involved in a sex act with a small dog.
“The possession of obscene and illicit material is made even more troubling when a sheriff’s office employee is found to be involved,” Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.
“Every resource of this office will be dedicated to protecting the public and holding our employees accountable for wrongdoing.”
The deputy comes from a law enforcement family, and they said they are waiting for more information.
His father says he is devastated to hear this allegation, that his son is a hard worker, and that he is reacting like any father would.
Sustaita is charged with obscenity, a state jail felony.
Before coming to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Sustaita’s LinkedIn profile said he was a U.S. Army specialist, and also worked at Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office.
A source who knows the deputy tells Eyewitness News, in his experience and knowledge, he knows him as an honorable and committed family man.
The hard working, honorable, and committed family man was actually fired and charged immediately, which might just be the most shocking part of this story. Reportedly, he could be facing additional charges, as well. He should probably update that Linkedin profile so that he’s ready to move onto another department once they offer him a plea deal for probation and some community service.
