A St. Lucie County Sheriff's detention deputy is now behind bars in the jail where he once worked.

43-year-old deputy Richard Akeem Henry was arrested over the weekend in Broward County on charges of sexual activity with a minor.
      
He was moved from Broward to St. Lucie County Tuesday and is being held in the facility where he's worked since 2013.
  
Investigators say the charges are related to incidents that occurred outside of the workplace.
 
Henry remains with the department on administrative leave without pay.
