BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A former Benton County sheriff’s deputy facing sexual assault and child porn charges now faces an additional sexual assault charge.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2kJZzrQ ) that Lloyd Sean Chandler was charged this week with second-degree sexual assault. The charge alleges he sexually assaulted a teenage girl while searching her during traffic stops in 2015.

The initial charges allege Chandler had sex with the girl in 2015 when she was 16 and he was 38 and that he exchanged pornographic photographs with her.

Chandler has pleaded not guilty.

Chandler was a sergeant with the special investigations unit at the Sheriff’s Office. He was fired after his arrest in February 2016.
