Darrion Keith Holiwell, the King County sheriff’s deputy charged with helping his estranged wife work as a prostitute, stealing department ammunition and illegally delivering testosterone will not appear in court until his arraignment hearing on July 1.
Because Holiwell was charged and his bail was set before his first court appearance, there is no need for a hearing until arraignment, prosecutors said.
Holiwell, 49, is being held in protective custody at the King County Jail, as is standard when a law-enforcement officer is arrested. His bail was set at $150,000.
“Once we file there is not an investigation hearing,” Dan Donohoe, spokesman for the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, said this morning.
On Thursday, the prosecutor’s office charged Holiwell with one count of second-degree promoting prostitution; one count of first-degree theft and one count of violating a drug law. Holiwell is believed to have used and sold steroids, said King County Sheriff John Urquhart.
