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.
