COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– The jury went home for the day on Monday evening without much deliberation after closing arguments in the corruption case of the former El Paso County Sheriff.
Terry Maketa has been accompanied by his wife throughout the court proceedings. His attorney is Pam Mackey, known for her representation of basketball star Kobe Bryant against rape charges that were ultimately dismissed.
The charges range from extortion to conspiracy to witness tampering and official misconduct.
For the defense, Mackey painted a picture of a man who served his community.
