The first openly gay deputy from Broward County, Florida to be named Employee of the Year pleaded not guilty to 21 charges on Friday, including allegations of on-duty sexual abuse, gay weekly the South Florida Blade reported.

Prosecutors say Broward Sheriff's Deputy Jonathan Bleiweiss intimidated at least eight illegal immigrants into performing various sexual acts.

Bleiweiss, 29, is accused of intimidating the undocumented young men into sex after pulling them over during routine traffic stops or stopping them on the street. He is also accused of stalking some of the men after they stopped returning his calls, court documents revealed.

Seven extra charges were added to the original complaint's 14 last week after investigators searched Bleiweiss' home where they discovered police and law enforcement records on nearly 30 men hidden inside a wooden chest in the bedroom. The printouts of photos and personal information included Bleiweiss' personal comments, such as “HOT JEEP GUY” and “HOT GUY IN TOYOTA ECHO.”

Prosecutors allege the deputy stopped young men in their late teens and early 20s who looked Hispanic. If the men were undocumented, he would fondle them or perform oral sex on them.

Defense lawyer Eric Schwartzreich dismissed the charges, saying there is no “physical evidence to support the allegations,” and questioned the motivations of the illegal men.

Bleiweiss has been suspended without pay by the Sheriff's Office and has been held at the Broward County Jail without bond since his arrest August 3.
