A former Lyon County Sheriff’s deputy is charged with third degree sexual abuse.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation arrested 35-year-old Christopher Lincecum Tuesday.

Officials started investigating allegations of sexual assault involving a 15-year-old girl and Lincecum in June. During the investigation they found that on two occasions the victim went on a ride-along with him while he was on duty.

Officials say during one of those occasions he had inappropriate sexual contact with her.

Lincecum left the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office last spring due to an unrelated matter.
