Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott sued the sheriff of Frio County to force it to release records a San Antonio resident has been seeking for over a year. The records included information from the personnel files of jailers and from the applications of bail bond companies authorized to do business there. “The Sheriff’s Office went to great lengths to develop excuses for not releasing information that is clearly public,” Abbott said.
