A Florida woman accused of making false sexual assault claims against Volusia deputy won’t face charges, according to authorities.
Tammy Stuck, who apparently accused a Volusia County Sheriff’s Deputy of touching her inappropriately, is off the hook, despite protests from Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood.
The state attorney’s office has declined to push for charges revolving around an incident on April 22, when Stuck and her husband had an encounter with a Volusia County deputy outside the Deltona commission chambers.
Stuck, who was wearing a knee brace, went through the metal detector and set it off.
Surveillance video shows the deputy then touched Stuck’s knee briefly, prompting her husband to protest.
“Get your hands off my wife,” he said.
In response to claims from the Stuck family that Mrs. Stuck was touched inappropriately, Chitwood released surveillance footage to debunk the allegations.
According to Click Orlando, the sheriff referred to the claims as “a blatant lie and a disgusting attempt to ruin a deputy’s career.”
Managing Assistant State Attorney Mike Willard declined to prosecute Stuck, writing “the Deputy did touch her leg on both sides of the knee to confirm the existence of the brace and not a weapon. She is careful not to make any other factual allegations regarding the alleged touching. Her comments evincing her opinion and innuendo do not fall within the purview of criminal conduct under the statute enumerated in the complaint.”
