Victoria sheriff stops releasing jail mug shots
from Victoria Advocate
The Victoria County sheriff is not releasing mug shots to the public at the same time others in the region are becoming more transparent. Sheriff T. Michael O'Connor is concerned he will be sued by those whose mug shots he releases who are later found innocent of a crime. However, no sheriff has ever been sued for that reason and lost, said Joe Larsen, a board member for the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas.
