District Judge Dismisses Case Against Embattled Midland Constable

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

A district judge has signed a dismissal in the case of embattled Midland Constable Choc Harris but it came with a price.

Harris had to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of interference with the public duties of a peace officer.

He'll also serve a deferred adjudication term of six months' probation and have to give up his peace officers' license.

Back in December, Harris submitted a resignation letter, saying he'll retire at the end of this month.

Harris was indicted by a grand jury in July on felony charges of tampering with government records and falsifying documents.

NewsWest 9 did talk to Harris on Saturday but he says he can't comment.
