A Monroe County Sheriff’s detention deputy was arrested Monday night for child abuse.
47 year old Juan Cotto was hired by the Sheriff’s Office in April of 2012 as a detention deputy. He is currently assigned to a post at the Marathon jail facility.
Homestead Police placed him under arrest for child abuse – not causing bodily harm. Details of the arrest should be obtained from that agency.
At this time, Cotto’s employment status is under review.
