San Patricio County commissioner pleads no contest, resigns

Longtime San Patricio County Commissioner Jim Price took a plea deal for a suspended jail term and resigned from office.

Price, 57, pleaded no contest Thursday to abuse of official capacity, a Class A misdemeanor. He was sentenced to one year in jail, which was suspended for one year of probation, according to court officials.

As part of the deal, Price had to repay the county more than $18,000, which he paid with a cashier's check at the courthouse, County Judge Terry Simpson said.

Texas Rangers arrested Price on July 28. He was originally facing theft by a public servant, a third-degree felony.
