Bandera County deputy settles whistleblower lawsuit

A former Bandera County deputy has now settled a whistleblower lawsuit against the county and the sheriff after the deputy’s complaints caused the sheriff to lose his job.

According to recently released records, the former deputy received $270,000 in the settlement. Although the man was happy to receive the money, he announced that he was more happy to see a criminal prosecution against the sheriff.

The 44-year-old man filed a lawsuit that stated that he was fired in May 2009 after he reported “unlawful, irregular and corrupt activities” within the department. The man was fired after nine years as a deputy for Bandera County.
