A Lee County deputy has been fired after an internal affairs investigation found he had sexually explicit photos on his work computer and had allowed a woman to be photographed topless while in his patrol vehicle.

The internal affairs investigation found Deputy Robert Hamer displayed conduct unbecoming of an officer and violated department rules and regulations.

The investigation began July 30 after Hamer’s wife notified the sheriff’s office there had been a domestic incident between her and her husband, and she believed she found pictures in his possession that violated the sheriff’s office policy.

She then sent several of the photos to investigators, one of which was of an unknown woman sitting in the driver’s seat of an unmarked patrol car. The woman was not wearing a shirt, and her breasts were exposed in the picture, according to the investigation report.

Investigators were able to determine the vehicle was assigned to Hamer at the time the picture was taken.

Investigators also recovered several sexually explicit images of Hamer and his wife on Hamer’s work computer.
