Shumate Verdict

David Glickler, Asst. TX Attorney General David Glickler, Asst. TX Attorney General

Former Potter County Sheriff Mike Shumate is no longer the Sheriff...  after being found guilty for first degree felony for engaging in criminal activity of bribery.

A very emotional jury found him not guilty of 2 counts of illegal campaign contributions.

"I think it was a fair and just verdict. I respect and appreciate their decision. We still have work to do with these 12 jurors," said David Glickler, Asst. TX Attorney General. 

Shumate was immediately removed from the Potter County Sheriff's Office.

Interim sheriff is now Captain Roger Haney.

Shumate faces sentencing next week.
