OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Weber County officials say a veteran Ogden police officer who retired last week is the focus of a sex probe.

The Standard-Examiner of Ogden is reporting today that Sergeant Doug Lucero's retirement came after allegations surfaced that he was having sexual relations with a female parolee.

Weber County Attorney Mark DeCaria confirmed the 20-year department veteran is under investigation.

He says it centers on whether Lucero knew the woman was on parole. Lucero -- who is single -- has not been charged.

The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that Adult Probation and Parole agents found Lucero standing in a darkened room at the woman's home when they made a routine visit on September 24th.

The woman reportedly has served time on a drug conviction.

Utah law makes it is a crime for corrections or police officers to engage in sexual relations -- even if consensual -- with convicted criminals.
