MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - A former Ouachita Parish school resource officer has been arrested and charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile.

The Ouachita Parish Sheriff reports Michael Sidden is also charged with one count of malfeasance in office, and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. Sheriff Jay Russell says Sidden's employment with OPSO has been terminated.

Russell says recently he was made aware of an incident in which an employee from the sheriff's office was alleged to have had an inappropriate relationship with a juvenile. He says the employee was placed on administrative leave immediately while an investigation was conducted.
