King County sheriff defends decision not to fire deputy who admitted buying steroids
SEATTLE -- King County Sheriff John Urquhart is defending his decision not to fire a deputy who admitted buying steroids. This is just the latest chapter in what the sheriff called a case of police corruption, centering around a now-disgraced former deputy named Darrion Holiwell. Holiwell was the sheriff's office's chief firearms instructor. He was fired for selling steroids, trying to pimp out his estranged wife, and stealing from the county's gun range. He is now in prison for those crimes.
