WACO, Texas - (AP) - The Texas Rangers are investigating mileage reimbursement forms submitted by a McLennan County justice of the peace.
McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna told the Waco Tribune-Herald (http://bit.ly/19DThD7 ) that he asked the Rangers to investigate Justice of the Peace Jean Laster-Boone after a county auditor turned over evidence of irregularities.
Laster-Boone declined comment. A spokesman for the Texas Rangers confirmed the investigation Friday.
Her mileage forms were reviewed after three former employees said they had falsified forms at her instruction.
McLennan County Auditor Stan Chambers said that the most the judge can receive for mileage is $360 per month and that her reports always reach the maximum.
