Lucas County deputy acquitted of assaulting inmate
A judge today took the unusual step of acquitting a Lucas County sheriff’s deputy charged with assaulting an inmate in a holding cell at Toledo Municipal Court. Visiting Judge Herbert Adams, a retired Sandusky County court judge, said he did not believe the alleged victim in the case, Kyle Espinosa, and he didn’t see how any of the jurors could believe him either.
