McCarty Removed

As of about 3 p.m. yesterday, Liberty County Commissioner Precinct 1 Mike McCarty was removed from office by visiting Judge Ernest McClendon. We reported earlier, a petition was filed by Liberty County Attorney Mathew Poston asking for the removal of Mike McCarty from his current elected office as Liberty County Commissioner.  The 42 page petition covered the recent trial in which Mike McCarty was found guilty of two charges of abuse of official capacity. The petition filed by the county attorney alleged incompetency and official misconduct. Yesterday, Judge McClendon signed the order and, then, acting on a recommendation from County Judge Jay Knight appointed Liberty County Businessman Bruce Karbowski as his replacement. Again, visiting judge Ernest McClendon granted a request by Liberty County Attorney Matthew Poston to have Precinct #1 Commissioner Mike McCarty removed from office. On the recommendation of CountyJudgeJay Knight, Bruce Karbowski was appointed to serve as McCarty’s replacement on Liberty County Commissioner’s Court in the interim. Bruce Karbowski, executed a surety bond and was sworn in to that office about 3 p.m.Monday following McCarty’s removal.
