William Wilson (pictured), 51, was arrested Monday after the El Dorado County District Attorney's Office filed criminal misdemeanor charges, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

In January, sheriff's personnel discovered information that an employee might have been involved in inappropriate activity, and an investigation was initiated to determine whether Wilson was involved, sheriff's officials said. During the investigation, Wilson retired, but the investigation continued.

The findings of the investigation were submitted to the District Attorney's Office for review and resulted in filing of the criminal charges, officials said.

Wilson turned himself in at the El Dorado County Jail in Placerville, where he was booked and subsequently released.
