Voters elected Stephens in November of 2016. She is the first female African-American sheriff in Texas... KFDM confirms with the Chambers County Sheriff's Office the indictment of Sheriff Zena Stephens of Jefferson County on one State Jail Felony count of Tampering with a Government Record, related to campaign contributions, and two misdemeanor charges. Two other candidates for sheriff in the race Stephens won in 2016 were also indicted on misdemeanor charges. According to a copy of the indictments obtained by KFDM/Fox 4, the contributions in question to each came from Larry Tillery, a Beaumont car dealer under federal investigation following raids on his business last year. Asset forfeiture documents obtained at the time by KFDM/Fox 4 accuse Tillery of operating "an illegal gambling and money laundering enterprise."

Doesn't everyone smile real big for their mug shots?
Tom DeLay started that trend.
It’s a sign that a new sheriff is needed when everyone running for the job is arrested for cheating while btrying to get it.
If I am not mistaken Delay was exonerated.
Correct, but it was a long fight.
First we need Judge Roy Bean to hang them all. Next comes the new reform Sheriff.
The length is irrelevant. That just goes to expose the corruption surrounding the indictment, that was entirely motivated by politics, to begin with.

Yes, I think that you are correct. DeLay was persecuted by Travis Co. DA Ronnie Earle. Whenever Earle’s name comes up, it is mandatory that the following ritual be discussed-
“...some of the rituals and activities he witnessed:
Blindfolded walking tours in the nude;
People blowing sage smoke in his face while 50 or so naked men danced around candles;
Men sitting naked in a circle discussing their sexual histories while passing a wooden dildo called “The Cock”;
Naked men beating cooked chickens with a hammer.”
These are the type of men that Travis County elects.
