DALLAS,TX. (AP) - An investigator for Texas Child Protective Services has been arrested and charged with sexual abuse of a child.
Nicholas Santos is being held in Dallas County Jail on $25,000 bond. Authorities say the charge is not related to his work for Child Protective Services, but have declined to go into further detail.
The 34-year-old Santos lives in Cedar Hill south of Dallas and has worked for the agency since March 2006. A CPS spokeswoman says the agency is investigating and will fire Santos if it determines the accusations against Santos are true.
Santos' lawyer did not immediately return a phone message.
