| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Sheriff of San Jacinto County has resigned after admitting he operated a marijuana trap on heavily traveled U.S. 59 as well as subjected jail inmates to water torture to gain confessions and testimony.

James C. Parker, 47 years old, entered the guilty pleas Friday to an extortion charge and two Federal civil rights violations before Federal District Judge Gabrielle McDonald. Mr. Parker, who could have been sentenced to a total of 40 years on the charges, agreed to plead guilty in exchange for a recommendation of three-year terms for each of the civil rights violations and five years of probation for extortion.
