Niagara County Sheriff's Deputy Resigns after Guilty Plea

January 15, 2013 Updated Jan 15, 2013 at 2:41 PM EDT

A Niagara County Sheriff's deputy who pleaded guilty to child endangerment has resigned.

Kevin Rohde, 32, was suspended from the force after investigators charged him with having sex with a 13-year-old girl when he was 18.

The process to fire Rhode was underway, but he handed in his resignation last week.
