An Anderson man who faces charges of organized criminal activity is trying to hold Grimes County Law Officials responsible for what he claims is harassment.
Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell, District Attorney Tuck McLain and others in both Grimes and Montgomery County are being sued by Leslie Shipman, who was arrested last June during an auction at his automobile maintenance shop.
While a representative of shipman lawyer John Quinn claims, this is about one man being bullied by county officials, D.A. McLain says it’s really all about saving Shipman.
This is just a silly waste of time, McLain goes on, adding that Shipman has a total of three federal cases against him, that he’s been ready to take to court for some time now.
McLain says this isn’t the first time a defendant has tried to buy time and keep his office from its job of bringing their client to trial.
Unlike the D.A., however, Sheriff Sowell tells Navasota News that he prefers not to comment on the matter at this time.
