Former Sul Ross law enforcement academy official indicted
ALPINE – A Brewster County Grand Jury returned three felony criminal indictments on April 16 against Kellie Powell, the former training coordinator for the Sul Ross Law Enforcement Academy.
The indictments charge Powell with tampering with a government record, specifically, the state licensing exam, by assisting students while taking the state-licensing exam. The three charges are state jail felonies.
The charges are the result of an investigation conducted by investigators from the Enforcement Division of the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards & Education.
Powell, the daughter of the late Brewster County Sheriff Jack McDaniel, is free on bond, according to sources.
An indictment is no evidence of guilt and all defendants are presumed to be innocent.
