CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

A Clackamas County deputy who pleaded guilty to assault involving his wife and stepson also lost his job.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office confirms Steven Hyson's employment was terminated at the time of his conviction.

Hyson, 47, made a plea change Wednesday and pleaded guilty to harassment, domestic violence including death threats and assault.

His sentencing is set for April 2.

In May 2012, court documents showed Hyson fought with his 22-year-old stepson, grabbed him by the head and shoulder and spun him into the side of the house, causing injuries, including a fractured cheekbone.

Hyson's wife told detectives he also pushed her out of the way and has been abusive toward her in the past.

He was arrested again at his Vancouver home last week on charges of violating a no contact order and tampering with a witness.

Court documents show that he confronted his wife last week and was enraged about information she gave to his lawyer. Police said he told her that her comments would make him lose his house and his job.

His wife told police that on numerous occasions Hyson told her she needed to tell the prosecuting attorney that he did not assault her or his stepson.

An arraignment for that case is scheduled for Friday.
