Former Deputy Gets Federal Prison Time On Sex Charge

A former Onslow County deputy sheriff will spend just over three years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a federal sex offense charge.

Edward Negron was sentenced to 40 months in prison, pay $7950 in restitution and placed on three years supervised release. In January, Negron pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a minor. As part of a plea, a second charge against him was dropped.

Negron was arrested in 2010 by Jacksonville police, just days after he resigned as a deputy. Last summer he pleaded guilty in state court to taking indecent liberties with a child and was sentenced to 5 years probation. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender.
