JACKSBORO (WATE) -- A former Campbell County deputy was arrested Tuesday on 16 sex charges, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Daniel Ward, 36, of Jacksboro, was indicted Monday by a Campbell County grand jury on 16 counts against one minor female.

Ward is charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual battery for a victim under 13, two counts of attempted aggravated sexual battery for a victim under 13, two counts of sexual battery by an authority figure and two counts of sexual battery.

Officials with the TBI said Ward is accused of sexually molesting the victim numerous times between October 2003 and March 2009.

Ward previously worked as a correctional officer and patrol deputy for the Campbell County Sheriff's Department.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation began investigating allegations against Ward in December at the request of the district attorney general.

Ward was booked into the jail on $25,000 bond.
