COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A judge has dismissed the case against a former Colorado sheriff's supervisor charged in a wide-ranging corruption case.
Former El Paso County sheriff's commander Juan "John" San Agustin was indicted in May 2016 after a probe by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
He was accused of coercing a woman who was involved in a domestic dispute with a deputy to recant her story.
Former sheriff Terry Maketa and former undersheriff Paula Presley have also been charged the case.
The Gazette reports that a judge dismissed the case against San Agustin Monday less than a month before he was set to go on trial.
A jury deadlocked on some of the charges against Maketa in June. He scheduled to be re-tried Jan. 23. Presley is set to go on trial Feb. 27.
