Winkler County Attorney Scott Tidwell, who went on trial in 118th Dsitrict Court last week on charges of two counts each of misuse of official information, official oppression and retaliation will have to spend some time behind bars, as he was sentenced to 120 days in county jail, 10 years probation and a $6,000 fine.
It took the jury approximately three hours Monday to find Tidwell guilty on the charges, which were presented in a Howard County court because of an ordered change of venue by presiding Judge Robert H. Moore III.
