Sheriff's deputy suspected of child molestation

NEVADA CITY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a long-time Sacramento County Sheriff's deputy on suspicion of child molestation.

Forty-three-year-old Donald Michael Black was taken into custody on Tuesday in Nevada County.

Nevada County Sheriff's Sgt. Dan Saunders says Black is facing five counts of committing lewd or lascivious acts on a child who is 14 or 15. Saunders did not know whether Black had an attorney, and The Associated Press could not find a listing for Black.

Saunders said Black bailed out of jail on Tuesday night.

Sacramento County Sheriff's officials tell the Sacramento Bee Black has been placed on paid administrative leave. He is a 23-year veteran of the department.
