Rangers turn completed Brown Co. Attorney investigation over to feds


BROWNWOOD, Texas - The Texas Rangers have submitted their investigation into the Brown County Attorney to the U.S. Attorney's Office, according to a spokesman with the Department of Public Safety.

Sgt. Frederick Biddle told KTXS on Friday that "at the request of the [Federal Bureau of Investigation], the Texas Rangers investigated allegations of misconduct in Brown County."

The Texas Rangers were looking into the legality of a program at county attorney Shane Britton's office, where people with misdemeanors could pay a donation to his office and receive more lenient sentences or have their convictions removed from their record.

Biddle also said the investigation "has been completed and turned over to the U.S. Attorney's Office."

The Texas Rangers and the Department of Public Safety won't be providing additional information at this time Britton, according to Biddle.
