East Texas Official Gets Probation for Personal Use of Items

An East Texas elected official must serve one year of probation for using county equipment on a personal project at his daughter's property.

Angelina County Commissioner Robert Lewis Loggins pleaded guilty Monday to two misdemeanor counts of official capacity, in a plea deal in Lufkin.

Investigators say Loggins in 2014 used county equipment to level land on his daughter's property. A neighbor witnessed the incident and complained.

Loggins must pay more than $2,700 in fines and restitution, plus he agreed not to seek re-election.
