[CA] Deputy Michael Slayton's slew of dropped dv charges (Why?)

November 29, 2005
Former Sutter County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Slayton has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of stalking his estranged wife. It appears that the other charges are dropped since they are no longer in the lingo of the case - three counts of spousal abuse, battery, making a death threat, burglary, six counts of violating a restraining order, and installing unauthorized wiretaps and video cameras in the house he had shared with his wife. Threatening death or great bodily injury and stalking are felonies. Slayton violated the protection order six times in a three week period and the judge upheld the $1M bail because of the percieved danger to his wife. She reports that he broke her wrist, pushed her down an attic ladder, set up surveillance cameras in her bedroom, hacked into her e-mails, after separating would break into the house, & follow her in her car. After the judge ordered Slayton to surrender his seven long guns and five handguns Slayton was heard during a monitored phone call from the jail asking a relative to keep two of the guns. Deputy District Attorney Diana Bermingham told the judge, "There are at least two missing."

He's eligible for up to five years' probation.
