Update, WED 10 PM: A judge sets a $260,000 bond for a St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputy accused of sexual battery.

Deputy Matthew Morris is now in the St. Lucie Jail; he's also been placed on administrative leave.

A woman says Morris forced her to perform a sex act on him on the grounds of a school in  Ft. Pierce. Morris was on duty at the time.
