Collin County District Clerks Charged With Corruption Again

Last July the Texas Rangers raided the Collin County Courthouse. Twice six district clerks have been indicted on theft of county money and dismissed. But yesterday a grand jury issued new indictments on “Abuse of Official Capacity” for stealing between $20,000 and $100,000. This grand jury has indicted Hannah Kunkle, the former elected District Clerk; the current elected District Clerk, Patricia Crigger; and Rebecca Littrell, the appointed Chief Deputy District Clerk.

The clerks are charged with keeping time records to grant more than 2,000 hours of paid time off to work on the Patricia Crigger 2010 campaign.

All three face a 3rd degree felony punished by 2 — 10 years.
