THE DEPUTY TRAVIS DEANE INVESTIGATION - PART 2
TROUBLE IN THE RANKS AT THE VCSO
Did Deputy Deane illegally, and without probable cause, arrest a sexual rival?
If so, did the Sheriff Department or the State Attorney take appropriate action against Deputy Deane?
July 16, 2012
Back on June 9, 2012 - VolusiaExposed.Com published our initial article on the then on-going Deputy Deane investigation within the Volusia County Sheriff Department.
Since our initial June 9, 2012 article, VolusiaExposed.Com has been advised that the Sheriff Department has terminated Deputy Deane's employment.
While the Volusia County Sheriff Department (VCSO) has terminated Deputy Deane's employment, due to his arrest involving supplying underage girls with alcohol, both the VCSO, and the local State Attorney, appear to be ignoring the seriousness of the probable false arrest of Stephen Dehut.
Mr. Dehut was the 21 year old boyfriend of 18 year old Kelli Capps, one of the underage girls apparently being supplied alcohol by Deputy Deane.
While the documents attached to this article articulate, both Deputy Deane's and Kelli Capps assurances that they were not engaged in a romantic relationship, the investigative documents also support that they (Deane and Capps) referred to each other in terms of endearment - "wifey" and "hubby"- (refer to page 4 of the Deane termination letter).
We, VolusiaExposed.Com have concerns that Deputy Deane manipulated members of the VCSO, in order to affect the arrest of Mr. Dehut for the alleged domestic abuse of Kelli Capps, so that he (Deane) could rid himself of a sexual rival regarding the affections of Ms. Capps.
VolusiaExposed.Com invites our readers to review the testimonies of VCSO Deputies Sierstorpff and Whitener - the arresting deputies in the Dehut arrest. We further invite you to review the testimony of VCSO Sgt. McGuire, Deputy Deane's supervisor. Sgt. McGuire apparently does not support that Deputy Deane was fully forthright in his explanations and involvement in the Dehut arrest.

Interestingly, even Ms. Capps believed that Deputy Deane was trying to remove her boy friend (Dehut) from the picture, in order to be able to develop a closer relationship with her. (See top of page 12 of Ms. Capps initial statement to the VCSO investigators)
