Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department officials arrested one of their own last week for alleged sexual misconduct with a minor. Deputy Jon Holm, 31, was taken into custody Friday evening following a nearly month-long investigation into allegations that he committed lewd acts with a then-15-year-old girl from northern Santa Barbara County. Holm, a four-year veteran of the department, is currently being held in San Luis Obispo County jail on $500,000 bail pending a hearing early next week. According to a department spokesperson, Holm and the victim appear to have engaged in the activity “willfully.”
