A retired San Luis Obispo County sheriff was arrested Wednesday on multiple charges of child sexual abuse, according to a sheriff’s spokesman.
Detectives arrested 63-year-old James Peter Storton of Arroyo Grande on an arrest warrant at an undisclosed location in town around 1:00 p.m. after filing their investigation with prosecutors. He was sent to the county detention center shortly after 4:30 p.m.
Cipolla said the site of arrest was being withheld to protect the victims and their families.
Fees, according to accounting records, include eight lewd and lascivious counts with a child, one lewd and lascivious count with a child aged 14 or 15, and eight unlisted charges.
Storton was hired by the Sheriff’s Department in 1980 and retired in 2009, according to Cipolla.
Detectives are asking the public for help in identifying other potential victims in the case by calling the sheriff’s department at 805-781-4500.
