Update from Sheriff Hutchinson

December 16, 2021 (Minneapolis) - This morning, I pled guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge stemming from my recent accident near Alexandria.

As Sheriff, I made the wellness of my staff a priority; however, I didn’t practice what I preached. This incident is a wake-up call for me. I understand the seriousness of my actions, for which I take full responsibility.

I am now enrolled in an outpatient treatment program to address my issues with alcohol and my overall health. This is the first step in the road toward recovery and regaining the trust of the people I work with and the residents of Hennepin County whom I serve.

I have returned to work and will focus on my duties as Sheriff.

- Sheriff David Hutchinson
