Perry, Florida - September 13, 2011 -

The Taylor County Jail tells Eyewitness News that Daniel McLeod, a former officer with the Madison Police Department, was arrested on September 9th by Perry police. The charges include two counts of lewd battery and one count of lewd molestation. The age of the alleged victim in this arrest is not known at this time.

The Madison Police Department’s Public Information Officer says that McLeod resigned back in 2009 after he was caught sexting with a minor. He was charged at the time with possession of child porn.

The Taylor County Jail confirms that McLeod did bond out and is not in jail right now.

From Eyewitness News 2009 story:

A Madison police officer caught "sexting" with a minor is forced to turn in his badge and could face criminal charges.

Officers say, 23-year-old Daniel McLeod was fired after he showed nude photos of under age girls on his cell phone to adults and other minors.

A teenage girl sent the photos to McLeod which is why officials are now strongly encouraging parents to monitor their kids' cell phones.
