A 56-year-old man was sentenced today to 30 days in jail for soliciting a prostitute last year, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

On April 10, Raymond Edward Bernasconi pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of soliciting a prostitute in case 6PC05400.

At today's court appearance, Bernasconi was remanded into custody following his sentencing.

Prosecutors said on Oct. 12, 2016, Bernasconi made arrangements online to meet a prostitute at a motel in Claremont.

When the defendant arrived at the location, he was arrested and taken into custody by law enforcement participating in a multi-agency human trafficking sting, according to prosecutors.

At the time of the incident, Bernasconi was a deputy for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The case was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department
