Hinojosa Steps Down

A Defiance County Sheriff’s deputy has resigned following his recent conviction on two misdemeanor offenses in Van Wert while his attorney said he was involved in an off-duty dispute not of his making. According to Defiance County Sheriff Doug Engel, Agustin Hinojosa, 35, resigned his position as a deputy prior to Monday’s termination hearing. Therefore, the hearing was not held. Hinojosa had pleaded no contest earlier this month in Van Wert Municipal Court to two charges: failure to disclose personal information and disorderly conduct. He was found guilty of each and fined.
