HOWARD COUNTY - The Winkler County attorney's trial has finally been set.

After much controversy over where the trial should be held for Scott Tidwell's case, a decision has finally been made.

The trial will take place on September 26th in a Howard County District Court.

You'll remember Tidwell is the attorney involved that tried to prosecute two Winkler County nurses for blowing the whistle on a local doctor.

When Tidwell's attorney was asked about the venue change he told NewsWest 9, "I'll pick a jury in any county, we're ready to go."

So far, Sheriff Robert Roberts, also tied to the retaliation, has been prosecuted.

Roberts is currently out of a job and serving 100 days in county jail.
