“HEMPSTEAD, Texas – Hempstead is a small town where, if someone doesn’t know you, they most likely know of you.
The people who know now-former Waller County Sheriff’s Deputy Dormic Smith say he’s been wrongly accused of inappropriate behavior with a female who was under arrest in Waller County for DWI in March.
On Monday, Sheriff Glenn Smith, who is not related to Dormic Smith, fired the deputy, who had been with the Sheriff’s Office for 2 1/2 years.
“Even when he became a deputy, still the same person as he’s always been,” said longtime acquaintance James Jackson. “I mean, that’s hard to believe, that he’ll do something like that.””
