Houston, Texas – A veteran sheriff’s deputy was arrested and charged with three felony counts of possession of child pornography after he was caught soliciting sex from young girls online, and he was found with several images that depicted babies, toddlers, and young children engaged in sex acts.

Donald Dehnert, 46, joined the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in 1992. He is from a family of police officers and after 25 years with the department, he found himself on the receiving end of an arrest this week when officers executed a search warrant at his home and took him into custody.

Dehnert caught the attention of police when a detective in Grand Prairie, Texas, was searching online chat rooms and found evidence that Dehnert was using one of the chat rooms to solicit sex from minors, according to a report from Click2Houston.

The detective obtained a search warrant and a SWAT Team searched Dehnert’s home for several hours before confiscating multiple computers and other items that were not specified. In a statement, the prosecutor said:

“The warrant was based on an online undercover investigation where the defendant solicited sex with the undercover officer’s 5- and 11-year-old daughters. The defendant was read his statutory warnings and agreed to speak with the officers. During the interview, he admitted to engaging in the chat.”

The prosecutor also noted that while Dehnert deleted several images, forensic investigators were able to retrieve them. The images investigators found on the computers and flash drives they took from Dehnert’s house were horrific, and ABC 13 reported that some of the victims were “under the age of two years old.” There were also images of a girl who looked to be between 6 and 8 years old, “appearing to perform a sexual act.”

Donald Dehnert is not the first veteran police officer who has been found possessing child pornography. A police sergeant in Florida was sentenced to 120 years in prison after he was found guilty of producing, possessing and accessing child pornography—all while he was on duty, using equipment provided by his department.

Kyle Kirby was charged after an investigation into his patrol car computer revealed images showing young children involved in sex acts. When investigators searched his police desktop computer they found “images of children naked or partially undressed after using a concealed camera to film unsuspecting children.”

In another case, an officer who had been with the police department in Attleboro, Massachusetts, for 32 years was charged with attempting to engage in sex with a minor, possessing child pornography and attempting to receive child pornography. When police searched his home, they found a hidden compartment with a stash of child pornography in his bedroom.
