County Judge Resigns Due To Drug Possession Charges

In the city of Seguin, recent reports indicate that a county administrator was accused of drug possession. Now, it has been reported that the County Judge, M.W., will quit his position in South Texas. He has plans to turn in his letter of resignation on March 26, 2012 and announced his intentions to vacate his position on Tuesday during a county commission meeting.

Back in February, 58-year-old M.W. was arrested at a hotel in College Station. While attending a conference, M.W. stayed at the local hotel where a worker reported that she smelled marijuana burning. The worker notified security who traced the odor to M.W.'s room. Police were then notified. When officers entered the judge's hotel room they found rolling papers and a bag of marijuana. M.W. was placed under arrest and was later released from law enforcement custody on a $3,000 bond. Judge M.W. was elected to office back in 2006 and he will be replaced Commissioner K.K. who will serve as acting county judge for the time being.
