Herald says County Attorney recused from Alpha Tex controversy

FLOYD COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

According to the Plainview Daily Herald there's a new twist to the ongoing Alpha Tex Controversy in Floyd County. 

In Late September the Floyd County Sheriff seized at least 200 dogs from the kennel a few miles outside Lockney.  Alpha Tex owners say they have done nothing wrong.  They say video of feces in water bowls, sick dogs, and a fly infestation were temporary problems.  They claim the sheriff over-reacted. 

Now the Herald reports that County Attorney Lex Herrington has recused himself from the case.  The public has been un-supportive, to say least, amid reports that Floyd County might settle out-of-court with Alpha Tex. 

Officials denied such reports to KCBD NewsChannel 11 but refused to clarify or provide further details.  County officials are also not confirming or denying that Herrington has been recused from the Alpha Tex matter. 

For now, the dogs remain in foster care all over Texas.
