Collin County District Judge Suzanne Wooten found guilty of bribery
A state district judge was convicted Tuesday after a two-week trial that spelled out how she accepted money to finance her 2008 campaign in exchange for future favorable rulings in court.
Suzanne Wooten, 43, was convicted of six counts of bribery, along with one count each of money laundering, tampering with a government record and engaging in organized criminal activity. Jurors chose the lesser charges on engaging in organized criminal activity and money laundering, meaning Wooten faces up to 20 years in prison instead of a life sentence. She is also eligible for probation. The punishment phase of the trial is scheduled to begin Monday.
Dallas County deputies’ holiday DWI campaign cut back as probe leaves funding frozen
The Dallas County sheriff’s drunken-driving enforcement campaign this holiday weekend is being scaled back because of an investigation into whether some traffic deputies falsified overtime records, officials said.
Since at least October, the department has been investigating whether deputies had been making it look as if tickets they wrote during regular shifts were written during overtime shifts paid for with federal grant money. At least seven deputies are under scrutiny, including one who is the subject of a criminal probe.
As a result, grant money has been frozen until the investigation has concluded, Chief Deputy Joe Costa said Tuesday. That means the Sheriff’s Department will not have that money to pay deputies to work extra shifts over the Thanksgiving holiday, Costa said.
