Detectives said Sadler and the victim engaged in sexually explicit conversations. He also allegedly sent nude photographs.
Sadler is married with two daughters and served in the U.S. Army.
He was immediately fired from the sheriff’s office and is now facing multiple charges in both Polk County and Okaloosa County.
