BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – A Brevard County man accused of trying to kill three sheriff’s deputies will have to continue to wear a GPS monitor until his trial.

John Derossett is accused of wounding agent Casey Smith in a shootout when deputies showed up to arrest Derossett’s niece in a prostitution bust at his home in 2015.

Derossett’s attorney, Mike Panella , unsuccessfully argued in court Monday to have Derossett’s ankle monitor removed.

“He’s been living peacefully in the community. Certainly isn’t a flight risk. Certainly doesn’t want to run,” said Panella.

Derossett has been out on bond on three counts of attempted murder.

Investigators said he shot Smith during a prostitution bust in August 2015 when investigators moved in on his Port St. John home.
