Dallas County DA Under Fire for Decision to Seek Charges Against Oil Heir

Federal authorities are investigating Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins in connection with his decision to seek criminal mortgage fraud charges against an oil heir, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Questions are swirling about whether Watkins leveled charges against oil heir Al Hill II in 2010 as a favor to political contributors, according to the Morning News.

Watkins was found in contempt last week for refusing to testify under oath about the circumstances leading up to his decision to seek charges.

A judge dismissed the mortgage fraud charge, the Morning News reported.

The FBI and U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Texas are investigating Hill.
