UPDATE: Liberty County SO Press Release and Foreword From LD

"Liberty County:  A seventeen (17) year employee of the Liberty County Attorney’s Office is presently under criminal investigation for the theft of several thousand dollars from that office. Information was received by the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department on June 17th. that the long time employee had in her possession receipts and cash monies from the County Attorney Office “Pre-Trial Diversion Project” and that other receipts were not in a secured safe as they should be.

Sheriff Bobby Rader notified County Attorney Wes Hinch who immediately began an audit of his office financial receipts and his personnel and on June 18th. Attorney Hinch requested a full investigation of his office after confirming the loss of several thousand dollars. Capt. Don Neyland assigned Sgt. Investigators Joel Davila and  Stephen Clappart to this case. Very shortly after the investigation began, an employee began making incriminating statements to fellow employees and to County Attorney Wes Hinch. On June 20th. the employee was allowed to resign

Presently the case is still being investigated to determine the exact amount of loss and all information has been turned over to the Liberty County District Attorney’s office to be reviewed by a Grand Jury for possible charges."

TOO LATE FOR A COVERUP... 


Liberty Dispatch has been informed by the Liberty County Sheriff's Office of yet another possible financial crime coverup by Liberty County Attorney Wes Hinch.  Please note in the above press release, this crime was not revealed by Liberty County Attorney Wes Hinch but by the great work of Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader and his command staff. Liberty County Attorney Wes Hinch has shown a history of covering up Liberty County financial crimes. We will explore those financial crime coverups in the coming weeks.

LD Note: Sources close to Liberty Dispatch state that almost two decade long Liberty County Attorneys' office manager employee for prior Liberty County Attorney Jack Hartel and current Liberty County Attorney Wes Hinch- has been accused of theft and possible embezzlement. The person under investigation for the named financial crimes in the Liberty County Attorneys office going back many years is, office manager Ms. April Dawn Duff 46 years old, who lives in Liberty Texas.

Ms. Duff's post employment status with the Liberty County Attorney's office is currently in question- According to sources, Wes Hinch states 'I fired her" but... the Sheriff's office states she resigned in their above press release.  Due to Liberty County Attorney Wes Hinch's questionable activities and coverups, readers should probably go with what the Sheriff's Office claims.

More on this story and series at a later date.

In April's defense I bet Hinch let knowing let her take the money to supplement her perceived lack of pay. I say Hinch is probably guilty of promoting April's activities.

Just saying...

The only thing worse than having "There's a Stench With Hinch" in office is having Little Timmy Allison in office. They both abuse the powers vested in them by the voting public, both are Democraps, and both are incompetent buffoons. Let's get some real Republicans to replace them next election.

How the heck did Hinch ever re elected? Was it because he was Mike Little's "hand" puppet?

Reports indicate that Wes Hinch has told people they can "take money". Im sure the Sheriff's office detectives will ferret this out.

Nice Chevy there April, Im sure everyone in Liberty County would like to have one as paid for by the county tax payers. I bet Hinch has a new one too.

I just wonder when they start looking back through records how much she clipped Jack Hartel's office for too?

Its irresponsible of Hinch to allow this to go on for the past almost five years.

I say indict Hinch and place Karen Mcnair as County Attorney, then we get rid of Mike Little Lite Hinch.

Innocent until proven guilty...don't forget! I know April and I'm sure there's something more here that we don't know.

I heard the Hinch man is pitiful in court. Has anyone double checked and made sure he has a law degree.

He's just lucky he married a rich girl otherwise he'd be starving to death.

Yeah, Karen McNair - please run for this office Karen. Save us from the laziest county attorney we've ever had - and that's saying a lot.

I think this problem needs to be nipped in the bud at the next election. Lets not leave him in office for the next 30 years, like Mike Little.
