Sounds pretty awful. The worst of it is that even if a jury does the right thing and exonerates the defendant, he will have been put through hell, probably near-bankrupted himself on the defense, and had a permanently damaged reputation. I hope someone has or will sue the deputy civilly, since it seems like "law enforcement" there is not willing to do anything.
