ADAMS COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The Former Adams County Chief Deputy who pleaded guilty to rape of a 15-year-old was sentenced to 30 months in jail Monday.

Jeffery McCarty pleaded to the charge after being arrested in February and charged with first degree rape.

Sheriff Kimmy Rogers says McCarty spent 26 years with the Adams County Sheriff's Office serving under four different sheriffs. Rogers in February said McCarty was the one who notified him of the allegations in early January.

"I received a call from our Chief Deputy saying there were allegations being made against him that were of a sexual nature,” Rogers said.

The Adams County Police say that immediately upon learning of serious allegations of off duty sexual misconduct involving McCarty, Sheriff Kimmy Rogers contacted the Adams Prosecutors Office.

According to Sheriff Rogers, he requested the Adams County Prosecutor to conduct an independent investigations into the allegations. 

Sheriff Rogers says his department has no knowledge of the investigation and McCarty is being held at a neighboring jail. While the arrest of his Chief Deputy comes as a shock, Rogers says these allegations affect much more than just his office.

"I was shocked as much as everybody else in Adams County when I heard about this and I think I've tried to handle it as fairly as I can,” said Rogers. "A lot of people say 'I bet it's tough on the sheriff's office.' It is tough on the sheriff's office but the thing about it is this is not about the sheriff's office. There is a victim. There is a victim's family. There is a suspect and a suspect's family and I assure you both sides of those families are going through way more than we are here at the sheriff's office,” said Rogers.

McCarty was placed on administrative leave by Sheriff Rogers pending the conclusion of the investigation. He resigned days later.

According to the Adams County Police, McCarty started with the Adams County Sheriff's Office in April 1989.  He served as deputy, detective, sergeant and was promoted to his current position of Chief Deputy on March 3, 2009.
