A food service provider with ties to Lubbock pleaded guilty, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Robert Austin Jr. pleaded guilty to one charge of giving a gift to a public servant.  The newspaper says he will serve two years probation and pay a $4,000.00 fine.  It's related to the bribery case of former Potter County Sheriff Mike Schumate. 

Mr. Austin is the president of Mid America Services.  That's the same company that provides food to the Lubbock County Jail.  The company also pleaded guilty, according to the Dallas Morning News and will pay a $100,000 fine.
