BEDFORD, Va. (AP) - A former Bedford County deputy sheriff captured in Kentucky after he fled morals charges has been indicted on five felony counts.


Forty-seven-year-old Ernest Grubbs originally faced 12 counts of taking indecent liberties with a child in a custodial relationship. Those charges were certified to a grand jury last month. The grand jury indicted Grubbs on five of the counts Tuesday after a special prosecutor agreed not to prosecute the other seven.


Grubbs was a school resource officer at Liberty High School. According to court records, he admitted having a relationship with a 16-year-old female student.


After his arrest in October, Grubbs posted bail and fled the area with the girl. He was captured Nov. 9.


A trial date has not been set.
