Volume 29, No. 113 Thursday, June 12, 2014

Commissioners: Liberty County Commissioners Tuesday made it clear they did not intend to return day to day operations of the jail back to the Sheriff until more is known on cost. Several attempts were made by the county judge to get the votes to return the operations to Bobby Rader, to his surprise with no chance to prepare. Liberty County Commissioner Mike McCarty made the motion to NOT turn the jail over to the sheriff for now. That motion was passed by unanimous vote of the three commissioners. The county judge did not vote on that motion. Charlotte Warner was absent.

Justice of the Peace Pct 1 Stephen Hebert set bond at $105,000 total. The truck passenger was Steven Allen Hoyt, 29, of Liberty. He was also charged with Evading Arrest with a Vehicle. His bond was also set by Judge Hebert at $100,000. The investigation is ongoing.
