Henderson County deputy accused having of sex with student

A Henderson County deputy has been fired and arrested, facing three felony counts of sex offense with a student.hendersondep

According to WLOS, former deputy Daniel Lindsey was arrested at his home around midnight Friday. Lindsey was a school resource officer at Balfour Education Center in Hendersonville, a “center for students who have challenges staying in school.”

The 27-year-old was allegedly carrying on an affair with a 16-year-old girl at the school.

According to a neighbor, Lindsey was divorced, but had recently remarried.

Sheriff Charles McDonald says the relationship was consensual, but North Carolina has strict laws regarding sexual relations with individuals under the age of 18, especially when it comes to authority/custodial figures. If Lindsey was making the arrest on a non-badged individual, it’s unlikely he would accept the “consensual” justification.

The sheriff adds that more charges may be pending.

Lindsey was also one of the officers involved in the raid on Todd Stimson’s home last July. The Stimson family is disgusted with the actions of the officer, who had “tried to comfort” the teenage girls after his cohorts had just kicked in their door and pointed guns in their faces.

Lindsey was released on bond and is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 21.
