LAKE COUNTY, Fla. - A Lake County Sheriff's Office deputy and Groveland police officer will face charges for failing to report a sexual abuse allegation to officials in the case of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Chad Corriveau.

Corriveau was arrested after the victim told police that in November 2016, he showed her pornography on his cellphone, the affidavit said.

The next month, the victim told police that Corriveau had complained about his lack of sexual relations and that she was then sexually assaulted by him, police said.

According to the report, Corriveau told the victim not to tell anyone.

Corriveau's wife, Alicia Corriveau, is a Groveland police officer and was first made aware of the incident with by the victim earlier this year. She is accused of reporting the allegation to Deputy Seth Luppino on Sept. 7. Luppino, in turn, waited 13 days to report the allegations, which is required by state law, the Lake County Sheriffs' Office said.

Luppino was initially placed on paid administrative leave, but officials said Luppino, who has been with the department since February 2008, is in the process of being terminated.

Luppino had no prior disciplinary action other than a reprimand for a minor at-fault traffic accident.

Luppino turned himself in Friday. 

Corriveau also turned herself in to authorities and resigned from the Groveland Police Department.
