Marina del Rey Deputy Sentenced in Teen Sex Case

A former Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy assigned to the Marina del Rey station was sentenced on Friday to serve 90 days in jail for having sexual relations with an underage girl.

Kenneth Alexander, 46, will also be on supervised probation for five years and attend a year of sex offender counseling. He must also stay away from the victim, who was 15 years old at the time of the first incident in 2011, and her mother. He also must not posses any weapons while on probation.

An informant contacted the Los Angeles County Child Abuse Hotline on Aug. 16, 2011. Detectives began following up on leads until eventually interviewing both the victim and Alexander. Alexander turned himself in on Oct. 20, 2011.

On Aug. 10, he plead no contest to the felony charge of oral sex with a minor. He has been free on bail since his arrest.

Alexander must spend at least 60 days in jail, but could end up serving the last 30 days under house arrest with electronic monitoring.
