WALLER COUNTY -

A Waller County deputy has been arrested for indecency with a child.

Investigators said Johnny Gonzales, 46, had sexual contact with an underage child last October.

Waller County has taken Gonzales of the streets and reassigned him to the Jail Division pending an internal affairs investigation.

The sheriff's office said Gonzales has worked for Waller County for less than a year. Before that, he worked for the Harris County Sheriff's Office for more than 20 years.

Gonzales' trial is set for January.
