WINKLER COUNTY - A former Winkler County attorney will be spending the next 45 days behind bars.

65-year-old Stephen Taliaferro pled guilty to soliciting a prostitute and official oppression.

Special Prosecutor Stephan Stallings says Taliaferro propositioned a woman back in April to settle a misdemeanor violation.

Audio recordings revealed Taliaferro told the woman he would settle her case if she had sex with him.

As part of his plea deal, he was ordered to resign.

Winkler County Commissioners are expected to meet Friday to accept his letter of resignation.
