Hearing Set For Suit Against Commissioners

A hearing is set for two East Texas men accused of abusing their positions as county commissioners.

The hearing is set for July 1st in the district courtroom in San Augustine. A judge from Richmond is handling the case.

Back in February, a group of county leaders filed a civil lawsuit against commissioners B.R. Bryan and Edward Wilson.

Bryan admits he got his truck fixed and put it on the county's tab. Wilson reportedly used excessive amounts of gasoline for a non-county vehicle.
