HARRIS COUNTY — A Harris County Sheriff’s deputy is accused of committing an unthinkable act involving an animal. According to court documents, Andrew C. Sustaita, who was arrested Monday and charged with obscenity, “intentionally produced an obscene performance, namely sexual bestiality.”

“The allegation involves production of obscene material that includes sexual contact with a dog,” said Dane Schiller, Harris County District Attorney’s Office spokesman.

Sustaita is a six-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, most recently assigned to the crime control division. He was immediately relieved of duty after being arrested.

Investigators from the High Tech Crime Unit were contacted the obscene video was found online originating from an account which was traced back to Sustaita.

“The possession of obscene and illicit material is made even more troubling when a Sheriff’s Office employee is found to be involved,” said Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. “Every resource of this office will be dedicated to protecting the public and holding our employees accountable for wrongdoing.”

Sustaita appeared in Probable Cause Court Monday night to face a judge. He is scheduled to return to court on Wednesday, at which time, additional charges could be filed.
