Officials charged Cassidy with 28 counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles under the age of 13. He was also charged with 110 counts of sexual abuse involving animals.

“I hold all of our employees to the highest standard. When a public servant betrays the trust of the community, that individual must face the consequences,” Sheriff Randy Smith said in a statement, according to WDSU.
