Timothy “T.J.” Brewer, 33, pled guilty on Aug. 6 to a pair of misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a family dispute, according to court records.
Brewer was fined $826 and sentenced to two years’ probation. A two-year sentence was suspended and the no contact order between Timothy Brewer and his wife and father had been lifted, according to the court docket.
“I do apologize for my actions that night and I take full responsibility,” Brewer told a judge, The Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret News reported. “I’m not a violent person … I wasn’t before and I’m not now.”
His attorney, Tara Isaacson, said the assaults “took place in the context of a very painful experience for my client.”
Brewer was a 12-year veteran of the sheriff’s office and was assigned to the narcotics unit. He was placed on administrative leave when he was arrested. He resigned from the sheriff’s office before the investigation of the incident was completed, said Grand County Sheriff Steve White.
His father, Corky Brewer, resigned Aug. 1 after 24 years as Moab’s fire chief, Izzy Nelson, chairman of the Moab Valley Fire Protection Commission, told the Deseret News.
