Hockley Co. attorney says former Levelland Sheriff was warned Deputy was "dirty"

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Former Hockley County Sheriff David Kinney took the stand in court again on Wednesday trying to get his job back.

Last year, a judge put Kinney on temporary suspension after two sheriff's deputies were arrested and indicted for their involvement in a major drug trafficking ring.

Ken Davis was appointed temporary sheriff during Kinney's suspension. On Wednesday, the attorney representing Hockley County claimed people had told Kinney they believed his Chief Deputy Gordon Bohannon was "dirty" several times.

Kinney claimed he had looked into the claims and found no basis. He also said the first he knew of Bohannon's criminal activity was when he read the indictment.

Hockley County's attorney also raised suspicion that nothing had been logged into the property room at the Hockley County Sheriff's Department during an extended period of time between 2007 and 2009.

Kinney says that is because there was no evidence or property to log in.

Testimony will continue on Thursday.
