Los Angeles-based celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred announced Monday night that she will represent a 16-year-old girl who has accused a former San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy and another man of having sex with her.

Allred will appear for the girl during this morning’s arraignment of the former deputy, Nathan James Gastineau, in San Bernardino, the lawyer said in an emailed news release.

During a brief telephone interview Monday night, Allred refused to comment on the case or her reasons for taking it.

Gastineau, 31, of Redlands, and Jason Henry Anguiano, 27, of Rialto, face multiple counts of unlawful sexual intercourse. Gastineau also faces three counts of lewd acts upon a child, and Anguiano faces two counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object.
