A former Indian River County Sheriff's Deputy has been arrested.
The sheriff's office says Steve Peek faces two counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child between 12-16 years old.
Peek worked for the agency between 2008 and 2014 when he left to pursue another career, according to the sheriff's office.
He was rehired this year as a deputy.
"When I learned of the criminal allegations against Peek, I terminated his employment with our agency," Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar said in a statement.
The sheriff says Peek, who was let go October 28, has been cooperative with detectives.
His bond was set at $150,000 on each count.
