TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Smith County Judge Jack Skeen Jr. granted a continuance to Smith County Pct. 1 Constable Curtis Traylor-Harris, pushing back his trial date to mid-November.

Traylor-Harris’ defense counsel said additional time is needed to fully vet key witnesses. The constable, currently suspended from his official duties, was arrested in 2021 after being accused of stealing from a residence while conducting official business as a constable. The new pre-trial date is Thursday, Nov. 3 with a new trial start date of Monday, Nov. 14.

Traylor-Harris recently successfully had his bond lowered after an appeals court judge ruled it was egregiously high and he is now also seeking to be reinstated to his constable duties.
