Texas Sheriffs Accused In Corruption Probe


Two Texas sheriffs are free on personal recognizance bonds after corruption indictments. The Dallas Morning News says that Dallas County Sheriff Jim Bowles was accused of misusing more than $100,000 in campaign funds and Denton County Sheriff Weldon Lucas was charged of lying to a grand jury.

“This cloud has been hanging over us for months and months,” said Sgt. Stan Thedford, president of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Association. “Now that [Bowles has] been defeated in the primary, he needs to focus his attention on his trial and let this department move on.”
