The first openly gay deputy from Broward County, Florida to be named Employee of the Year is facing allegations of on-duty sexual abuse, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.

Prosecutors are accusing Broward Sheriff's Deputy Jonathan Bleiweiss of intimidating at least eight illegal immigrants into performing various sexual acts. He faces 14 criminal charges, with more being considered.

Bleiweiss, 29, is accused of scaring the undocumented men into sex after pulling them over during routine traffic stops. He is also accused of stalking some of the men after they stopped returning his calls, court documents reveal.

The seven-year veteran deputy was taken into custody Monday and remains jailed without bail.

Defense lawyer Eric Schwartzreich dismissed the charges, saying there is no “physical evidence to support the allegations.”

In March, Bleiweiss was named Oakland Park Employee of the Year and honored during a City Hall ceremony. Bleiweiss' beat includes a large gay population.

“Gay people actually say to me that I'm homophobic,” he told gay weekly South Florida Blade in March, “and that I'm going to discriminate against them because they are gay. They feel that they are being treated differently when actually they're being treated like everyone else.”

Schwartzreich said he plans to seek a new bail hearing for his client.
