GEORGIA - A former deputy with the Grand Isle County Sheriff's Department is facing child porn charges.
The Vermont attorney general has charged Nick Moen, of Georgia, with three felony counts of possession of child pornography.
Investigators say Moen used file sharing networks to get and share sexually explicit images of kids online.
He denied the charges Thursday and was released on court ordered conditions restricting his access to children and the internet.
Sheriff Ray Allen said Moen was a sworn deputy with Grand Isle County until September 2013 when he was officially discharged. His termination was not based on misconduct; instead the sheriff said Moen's schedule did not fit with the department's needs. While with the department, Moen worked core security, traffic details and transports. He did not serve as a school resource officer.
