Sheriff's deputy denied bail in child pornography case
Amid lurid allegations of child endangerment, a federal judge Monday denied bail for a former Harris County deputy sheriff, saying he posed a danger to the community and might attempt to flee given the gravity of the charges. Sustaita, 30, had already been denied unsupervised contact with children and was staying with his father, a veteran investigator at the Harris County Sheriff's Office. [...] a federal prosecutor argued that the defendant could still access cellphones and firearms at his father's home, which is just blocks from an elementary school. Jeremy Thomas, an investigator and former colleague at the county sheriff's office, testified that Homeland Security investigators informed the department that a person using a username linked to Sustaita had been active on a child pornography website and a bestiality website.
