In an August 30 ruling, 12th Court of Appeals in Tyler deemed Traylor-Harris’ $1 million bail amount to be “unsupported by the evidence and therefore excessive.” Traylor-Harris was arrested in 2021 after being accused of stealing from a residence while on the job as a Smith County constable. He has been charged with official oppression, abuse of official capacity and theft of property by a public servant.
