Kitsap County deputy arrested

A deputy with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office is pleading not guilty to alleged misdemeanor domestic violence after he was taken into custody over the weekend.

A new release by KCSO said the deputy, later identified as 49-year-old Victor Manuel Olvera, was arrested after a report of an incident involving his wife, 41-year-old Darcie Daniel Olvera, came in just before noon Feb. 25.

Officials say Olvera voluntarily surrendered his badge, county vehicle, commission card and all firearms upon being taken into custody.

Olvera appeared virtually before the Kitsap County District Court Feb. 27, where Judge Susan Caulkins saw enough probable cause to move forward with the charge of 4th-degree assault with special allegations to domestic violence. If found guilty, the charge carries a punishment of up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $5,000.

Case records indicate Darcie was arrested for the same charge in August of last year. Police reports from the Bremerton Police Department in that case say she appeared to be intoxicated and admitted to laying her hands on her husband, saying she was done with him and accusing him of being mentally abusive toward her.

Olvera was granted a pretrial release by Caulkins due to no prior criminal history but was ordered to have no contact with his wife, aside from texts or emails regarding their children and “coordination of financial matters.” A similar no-contact order was issued in the previous dispute but had been rescinded as of Sept. 21, four days after Darcie entered a Pre-Trial Diversion Agreement.

Olvera was also prohibited from possessing firearms or other weaponry and was placed on administrative leave from KCSO. The case is being investigated by the Bremerton Police Department. Pre-trial is scheduled for March 29.
