Collin County DA Indicted on Record Tampering

A conviction can make it hard to get a job, and employers often conduct background checks through the State Police.

Collin County First Assistant District Attorney Greg Davis was indicted on a state jail felony charge of tampering with a governmental record.

Tuesday's indictment stems from an investigation into the district clerk's office in which supervisors are accused of falsifying county records to show they were on duty when they weren't.

The Dallas Morning News reports that Davis had signed a motion this fall filed by the DA's office asking to be recused from prosecuting the clerk employees. It said the DA's office altered time records to indicate employees were at work when they weren't because they were given paid time off as a reward for good conduct.

Davis' attorney, Ted Steinke, said Davis will fight the charge, adding they don't know what evidence there is against him.
