A Walton County (Ga.) Sheriff's deputy may lose his job for a racy online photo showing his hands on the buttocks of a woman while in uniform.

Deputy Thaddeus Lloyd is seen in uniform next to his patrol car with the woman who was nude from the waist down.

Lloyd has said the photo is 11 years old, and was taken when he worked at the Clarkston Police Department. It somehow made it onto Myspace and Facebook and was recently found on a confiscated inmate's cellphone that had been smuggled into a state prison.

Walton Sheriff Joe Chapman said Lloyd was a good deputy, and he said it's a shame one picture could cost Lloyd his career.

Really? A career over one picture that's that old and when he was in a diff dept? Maybe a demotion is in order...but a career. Don't get me wrong he's an idiot for doing this.

Denied!: IMO, eleven years old, news is new, not old, forget this one.

I admit he is an IDIOT for doing what he did.but if it's true that the picture is 11 years old and taken while he worked for another dept. how can he possibly be punished by the Walton co. Sheriffs Dept. when he did NOTHING WRONG WHILE BEING EMPLOYED BY THEM ! what can they charge him with ?
