Man Sentenced For Intimidation Of Hancock County Deputy

A Hancock County man learned how much time he’ll be spending behind bars after previously being convicted of a felony charge in connection with an incident involving a sheriff’s deputy.

Ronald Dean Lauck, 52, of Arlington, was facing a charge of felonious assault, a first-degree felony, and a charge of intimidation, a third-degree felony, in connection with an August, 26th 2020 incident in Jackson Township.

Deputies responded to 16091 County Road 8 that night to investigate a domestic dispute that involved Lauck’s son.

During their investigation, the sheriff’s office said Lauck fired a shotgun at a deputy and the deputy returned fire.

No one was struck by the gunfire.

In early March, Lauck was found not guilty of the felonious assault charge and guilty of the intimidation charge.

Both charges came with a firearm specification.

Lauck’s sentencing was on Tuesday and he received two years for the intimidation charge and the mandatory three years for the firearm specification for a total of five years.

He was given credit for 28 days served.
