Former Grayson Deputy Indicted

3-30-06 - A former Grayson County deputy has been indicted for sexual assault. Wednesday a grand jury decided that there was enough evidence against 30-year old Mark Garcia to have a trial.

The indictment stems from an incident on September 18, 2005 when a woman told Sherman Police that Garcia raped her after a party in his home. Sheriff Keith Gary terminated Garcia a few days following the incident over a personnel issue.

Meanwhile, Sherman police opened an investigation into the rape allegation. Sexual assault is a felony charge but the DA’s office says that if Garcia is convicted, because he has no prior convictions, he could get off with probation.
