A jail programs civilian employee, Lares had been employed with the Sheriff’s Office since May 2014, officials said.

“This former employee learned the hard way, that we can pick our actions, but not our consequences,” Sheriff Javier Salazar said in a statement.

The Sheriff’s Office noted that SAPD is handling the family violence investigation, which is ongoing.

Court records show that Lares was released Friday on a $3,5o0 bond.
