Collingsworth sheriff resigns as part of plea deal
Back in November, Jerry Allen was indicted on two misdemeanor charges. Allen was charged with official misconduct and abuse of official capacity because he hired his step-daughter to work in the Collingsworth County Sheriff's office. In Texas, it is illegal for elected officials to hire relatives to work for them. He resigned and surrendered his peace officer's license as part of a plea deal with District Attorney John Heatly.
