Assault charges won't be filed against former deputy
A former Hubbard County deputy will not be charged with an alleged sexual assault he was accused of last summer.
No formal announcement was made, but the apparent conclusion of the matter came to light recently in testimony in an unrelated court matter.
Hubbard County Attorney Don Dearstyne confirmed that the case, which had been turned over to Clearwater County Attorney Jeanine Brand, would not proceed to the filing of formal charges. He declined further comment.
