Sheriff Enrique "Kiki" Vigil announced Tuesday that an internal affairs investigation was conducted by an independent investigations firm and the findings recently returned were substantiated in one of the complaints against Roberts.

Vigil didn't disclose details of the findings.

"I cannot condone this type of behavior under any circumstances and will do all that I can to ensure that the sheriff’s office is free of sexual harassment or any other type of misconduct," Vigil said.

Last month, Roberts was suspended without pay for 10 days and temporarily relieved of all supervisory duties.

Roberts was named undersheriff in August 2016. He was previously an investigator in the public corruption and white collar crimes division.
