Animal cruelty charge pending for former Caney City Police chief
CANEY CITY, Texas (KLTV) - The Henderson County District and County Attorney’s Offices has released a statement explaining that the former Caney City police chief will be criminally charged.
The letter states Charles Gregory will have a cruelty to animal charge filed against him.
The letter was sent to attorneys in the Henderson County Defense Bar, notifying them the charge likely trigger a duty to disclose under Brady v. Maryland. That ruling states it is the obligation of prosecutors to make attorneys aware of honesty issues with a law enforcement officer.
According to the letter, the allegation stems from an incident on April 8, in which Gregory picked up a stray dog in Trinidad and drove it to Malakoff and abandoned it.
The letter states Gregory may have made false statements to officers of Trinidad Police Department.
A call to the Caney City office was not answered.
