VOLUME 27, NO. 205 MONDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2012


County Settles Suit: Liberty County Commissioners have agreed to a $30,000 settlement of a lawsuit filed over the bogus reports of a mass grave in the Hardin area back in June 2011. Gena Charleston and Joe Bankston filed suit in the 193rd District Court in Dallas in June of this year against Liberty County Sheriff’s Department and several members of the national news media. You may recall a tip to the sheriff’s department claimed there were more than 30 bodies – mostly children – buried on the property owned by Charleston and Bankston. It all turned out to be a wild goose chase. The tip had come from a self-described psychic who has never been identified. However, the story was immediately picked up by national and international news agencies before the report had been investigated. Liberty County Attorney Wes Hinch said commissioners approved a settlement of $15,000 each to Gena Charleston and Joe Bankston on the recommendation of the county’s insurance company.
