A Lee County Sheriff's Deputy is off the job after an internal affairs investigation revealed he received a massage with a "happy ending," and did nothing to stop it.

According to the internal affairs investigation report, Deputy Pierre Sicard, a Corrections Officer, told other deputies he went to a massage parlor for stress therapy, and at the end, the the therapist touched him sexually.

The report says Sicard told the other deputy he paid $75 for the massage and gave the masseuse a thirty to forty dollar tip.

The other deputy told investigators he got the impression the tip was for the "happy ending," and said Sicard was encouraging him to get a massage and it was a great form of stress relief.

Sicard admitted to investigators the masseuse touched his "private part" and he was weak and didn't stop her, but he didn't ask for it.

He also told investigators he was extremely embarrassed about the situation.

Four in Your Corner's Lisa Greenberg stopped by Sicard's home to talk about what happened.

Sicard did confirm he used to work for the Sheriff's Office, but had no other comment.

"They're supposed to be guarding the public, and that's just not what you do when you're guarding the public. It's just not right," neighbor Sue Lawson said.

She doesn't know Sicard, but thinks law enforcement should be held to a higher standard and is glad he was fired.

"He should have some kind of retribution, and that seems like a fair retribution," Lawson said.

Sicard was not on duty when the incident happened.

The Cape Coral massage parlor's name was removed from the report.

We reached out to Cape Coral Police to find out if the massage parlor or masseuse will be facing any punishment, but we haven't heard back yet.
