Constable Floyd Hockensmith has been ordered by a judge to give up his firearms and stay away from a woman who filed a domestic violence complaint against him.
Judge William Ryan Jr., a retired Jefferson District Judge who was specially appointed to hear the case after Judge Squire Williams recused himself, issued a domestic violence order requiring Hockensmith, 43, to remain 500 feet away from the woman, and to enroll and complete domestic violence counseling, according to court records.
Hockensmith was also ordered not to have any contact with the woman and not to possess any firearms or weapons, records say. The file also says “domestic violence has occurred and (is) likely to happen again.”
The woman, who works at University Lodge with Hockensmith, filed a complaint against him on June 20.
“(Hockensmith) has made remarks about wanting to sleep with me and one of the other tenants. He has pinned me down in the kitchen…” the complaint says.
The woman has received several text messages from Hockensmith involving the same request, according to court records.
Text messages between the woman and Hockensmith were presented in court Tuesday when the order was issued. In one conversation, Hockensmith asks the woman what she got him for Father’s Day.
Hockensmith: “No clues or hints?”
Woman: “I would use it in the morning!!”
Hockensmith: “U would or I would. I know the first thing I touch or use in the morning. Lol”
Later, Hockensmith writes, “You can’t handle this skank.”
The DVO remains in effect until July 31, 2015.
Hockensmith is a Franklin County constable representing District 1.
