WILMINGTON, N.C. — A former North Carolina sheriff’s deputy has been found guilty of several sex-related charges and is facing at least 27 years in prison.

WECT reported that former New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office deputy Harold Lamont Fletcher was convicted by a jury on Friday.

The 39-year-old Wilmington resident was convicted on charges including attempted first-degree sexual offense, six counts of indecent liberties with a child and 18 counts of felony secret peeping.

Fletcher was charged in December 2012 with secret peeping and taking indecent liberties with a minor. He was fired by the sheriff’s office on the same day.

Additional charges were filed in January 2013 after more evidence was discovered, according to the district attorney’s office.

A judge also ordered Fletcher to register as a sex offender for 30 years.
