LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - There is more legal trouble for the former Hockely County Sheriff's Deputy who is charged with drug related crimes.   Tuesday court records reflect something called a superceding indictment.

That means a new indictment replaces the old one.  Former Deputy Gordon Bohannon faces similar charges to the ones that he has already been indicted for. Bohannon is accused of helping Bobby Froman run a methamphetamine drug ring.

Bohannon is now also the target of two new civil rights lawsuits.  Ronnie Dewayne Crawford claims Bohannon and other officers conspired to violate his constitutional rights.   Crawford faces drugs charges, not related to the July 10th drug bust in which Bohannon was arrested.

Crawford claims he is innocent and was the victim of false arrest.   He's seeking $10.2 million in damages.  Court records indicate he's no longer in jail.

David Rangel is still in jail, according to his lawsuit, and he has sued Bohannon, suspended Hockley County Sheriff David Kinney, and others. Rangel claims he was charged with aggravated assault because he was unable to provide Bohannon with information about another crime.  Rangel has not listed a specific dollar amount in his lawsuit.
