McCarty to Trial: The trial for Liberty County Commissioner Pct. 1 Mike McCarty, on two counts of abuse of official capacity, is set to begin next Monday in the third-floor 75th District courtroom. Visiting Judge Joe Ned Dean from Trinity County will be presiding. We reported back in June 2015 that Mike McCarty had been indicted by a Liberty County Grand Jury. Mr. McCarty gained re-election in 2016 while under indictment. Both indictments allege the activities for which he is charged took place between January 1, 2013, and January 1, 2015. Commissioner Mike McCarty is scheduled to go on trial next Monday, April 17, in the 75th District Court with Visiting Judge Joe Ned Dean presiding. The case is being handled by a special prosecutor with the Polk County District Attorney.
