Kansas City, KS - A Wyandotte County Sheriff's deputy has been charged with the sexual abuse of a child.

Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree announced charges Tuesday against Michael Mastel for rape, aggravated criminal sodomy and three counts of sexual exploitation of a child who was under 14 years old.

Dupree said the charges stem from an investigation that began in October, and that Mastel allegedly knew the victim.

Mastel has worked for the Sheriff's Office since 2010.

The Sheriff said that he is still employed but has been placed on administrative leave.

Mastel was being held on $250,000 bail.
