Reports: Paxton indicted by grand jury

By Patrick Svitek,
The Texas Tribune
August 1, 2015

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has been indicted by a Collin County grand jury, Dallas-area media reported Saturday, citing unnamed sources close to the case.

Paxton faces three charges in indictments that were issued Tuesday and instantly sealed, according to NBC 5. The charges will be revealed Monday in McKinney, and a Tarrant County judge has already been tapped to oversee the case, WFAA reported.

The special prosecutors, a spokesman for Paxton's lawyer and a spokesman for Paxton did not immediately return calls Saturday.

Two special prosecutors, Kent Schaffer and Brian Wice, have been presenting evidence to the grand jury in connection with Paxton's self-admitted violation of state securities law. Schaffer has previously said he and Wice would pursue an indictment for first-degree felony securities fraud.

Paxton admitted last year that he solicited investment clients for a friend and business partner without properly registering with the state. He was reprimanded and fined $1,000 by the State Securities Board.

Schaffer and Wice, both attorneys from Houston, were selected to look into Paxton's admission after Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis, a friend and business partner of the attorney general, stepped aside.

Explosion kills stage manager at Palo Duro Canyon amphitheatre


One person is dead after what was described as an 'explosion' at the Palo Duro Canyon amphitheatre, according to officials at the scene.

The Randall County Sheriff's Office said a 21-year-old stage manager was killed. His or her identity was not immediately released because relatives had not yet been notified.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the fireworks storage building at TEXAS exploded.

The explosion happened at 5:54 p.m. The Sheriff's Office said debris blew up to 300 yards away.

The fire has been extinguished but hot spots remains. Firefighters will remain on scene through the night.

The Amphitheatre houses the famous outdoor musical 'TEXAS'. The musical has been canceled for Friday evening.
