Rene Rodriguez, a former Blaine County Sheriff’s deputy and a former sheriff of Lincoln County, is still facing a jury trial for seven felony charges, including sexual abuse of a minor. The trial was originally set to begin in August. However, due to the amount of materials associated with the case, the trial has been continued twice now, and is currently set to begin in November.
Rodriguez, 40, of Shoshone, has been out on bond since April 18 and in July was granted permission by the court to have supervised visitations with his biological children.
