Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy James Doyle, 45, of Long Beach, has plead not guilty to charges of groping the breast of a 15-year-old girl while her father lay dying in a local hospital. Doyle is charged with committing a lewd act on a child.
According to the charges, Doyle reportedly took the hospitalized father's two young girls out to eat. The breast groping incident took place while Doyle was taking the girls home.
Although the girl's mother became aware of the incident a week after it happened, she waited until the child's father died in September to alert authorities. If convicted, Doyle faces three years in prison.
