4th deputy agrees to statement
This week, we’ve explored the charges against the Precinct 3 Constable’s office.
We’ve heard from Precinct 3 Constable Dustin Rust.
We’ve even heard from Rust’s father Donn Rust who is running for Sheriff.
We’ve heard from Smith County DA Matt Bingham, who told KETK, he had affidavits from all four arrested Constable Deputies, implicating Constable Dustin Rust in improprieties.
At issue, private, off-duty security work done for local neighborhoods.
But at the time, Bingham only had 3 affidavits in hand. The fourth, from former deputy Monty Ward, was negotiated today.
Ward's attorney Robert Perkins spoke with KETK this afternoon, and said they had agreed to a statement for the District Attorney,
And it goes far beyond the misdemeanor for which he was arrested.
