Marina del Rey Deputy Sentenced in Teen Sex Case

The former L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy turned himself in last year.

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.

Wow! He got off easy.... any non-cop would have gotten years for this. Do google keywords like sex offense and police officer. It will make your toes curl. By percentage of the population I am guessing cops are the greatest danger to your child, in terms of sex abuse. And pray tell, what is this - "He also must not posses any weapons while on probation." - as a convicted felon (no contest makes no diff) he is FOREVER prohibited from possessing a firearm. I sincerely hope that this is shoddy reporting! But nothing would surprise me anymore.

@ Pam..."this mus be a white guy"?? That's an ignorant comment. Regardless of his race or ethnicity he got off too easy. He's a cop, they should get it worse than a civilian as they take an oath to protect & serve.

he should have to register as a sex offender, right?

There MUST have been very extenuating circumstances involved and no one who was not in the court room should comment as you do not know what went on, or detail of the incident(s).

Is it you Ernest who is the offender? Based on the information presented the Deputy is a sex offender, which is a felony.

I do not wish the status of "sex offender" on anyone, including a police officer. However, it will be interesting to see if indeed this police officer, like others who have been convicted of the same crime, becomes a registrant. If not, anyone subsequently arrested for the same offense could argue a lack of equal protection which is a right of all citizens under both the state and federal constitutions.

There is no equal protection. None. It isn't just this man, it happens every day. Seems law enforcement just picks and chooses which man to procecute and which ones to list on the registry.
