Special prosecutor to press combined case against Rockwall district attorney

A Rockwall County grand jury on Wednesday consolidated the existing criminal charges against longtime District Attorney Ray Sumrow and added a few new ones.
Moving all of the charges – from Travis County and Rockwall County – together under the control of Special Prosecutor John Roach could make it easier for a plea bargain to occur, Mr. Roach acknowledged. But he said that wasn't necessarily where the case was heading.
"We're always getting ready for trial," said Mr. Roach, the Collin County district attorney. "We don't get ready for plea bargains."
The new charges are tampering with a government record, forgery and theft. The existing charges are abuse of official capacity, forgery and theft.
