The Bexar County Sheriff is facing charges related to payments he received from a private company who does business with the jail, Louisiana-based Premier Management Enterprises. As we've previously reported, they've received the lucrative Bexar County Jail commissary contract. This indictment is part of a larger investigation of Sheriff Ralph Lopez, his longtime campaign manager John Reynolds, Premier, and others.
It's worth mentioning that the LeBlanc brothers mentioned in the article as principals of Premier Management Enterprises are the same that own Louisiana Correctional Services, a private prison company that has a couple of prisons in Texas (as you can see on our map) and is trying to build one in Nueces County as we speak.
Lopez's attorney says that he's looking forward to their day in court, but no word in the article about when that day will be.
