Dallas Commissioner Raided by FBI, Had Deal with Bail Attorney


Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, while serving on a board that oversees the local bail bond industry, obtained two vacant lots valued at more than $50,000 from an attorney who has written millions in bail bonds, reports the Dallas Morning News in an article available online only to paid subscribers.

The FBI raided Price’s offices and home on Monday, along with the offices of his political consultant and his assistant. Price has served as a commissioner since 1985 and was the first African-American elected to the commission.
