In response to false rumors and allegations floating around the internet, the San Jacinto County Sheriff's Office makes the following statement regards an alleged incident with one of its Deputy Sheriff personnel.
On April 5, Sheriff Greg Capers was contacted by a North Texas Police Department regarding their investigation into a harassment allegation against San Jacinto County Sheriff Office Deputy N. Deweese. The Sheriff was advised that a charge of Harassment, a Class B Misdemeanor, had been filed against Deweese in their jurisdiction. Deweese reported to the Sheriff's Office and tendered his resignation, citing personal reasons. In accordance with arrangements made by the law enforcement agency, he then posted an “out of county” non-arrest bond in the amount of $1,000.00. Deweese then left the Sheriff's Office to attend to his personal business.
Deputy Deweese served San Jacinto County with pride and dedication. His situation was based on a personal relationship and had no reflection on his duty or work in San Jacinto County.
