Guam - A Civilian Police Reserve officer is behind bars, accused of sexually assaulting a female minor several years ago.  James John Esperon, 30,  was arrested on one count of 1st degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of nd degree criminal sexual conduct.

Guam Police Department spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia confirms that a female minor reported to police that the sexual assault happened back in 2011 when she was approximately 12 years old.   Esperon was assigned to the Civilian Volunteer Police Reserve Office and will not be allowed to return to duty pending an Internal Affairs investigation that is underway into his arrest.  His duty weapon and badge were also taken away and he has been suspended from the reserve program pending the completion of the investigation.

Esperon remains behind bars pending a magistrate's hearing set for Wednesday afternoon.
