Thursday court hearings are scheduled for Terry Maketa, former Undersheriff Paula Presley and former sheriff’s commander Juan San Agustin. Maketa resigned in 2014 from his post in El Paso County. A grand jury indicted all three in May.

Maketa and Presley are accused of threatening to terminate a contract with a company if the company didn’t fire an employee.

Maketa, Presley and San Augustin also are accused of coercing a woman who was involved in a domestic dispute with a deputy to recant her story. The woman was then arrested.

Maketa led the department for 12 years, the last of which was marked by accusations of sexual favoritism and intimidation.
