BASTROP, Texas — Former Bastrop County Sheriff Richard Hernandez, already under indictment on charges of improperly using county materials and inmates for personal projects, faces six new corruption charges.
Hernandez, 51, was indicted Tuesday on new charges, including one count of theft by a public servant after being accused of having a jail fence moved to his own property.
Hernandez resigned in May after he was indicted on suspicion of using county equipment, materials and jail inmates to build barbecue pits he sold for personal profit.
