Rangers Investigating Local Justice of the Peace

WACO -

The Texas Rangers are investigating McLennan County Precinct 7 Justice of the Peace Jean Laster Boone over alleged discrepancies in mileage reimbursement forms. 

District Attorney Abel Reyna confirmed his office asked the Rangers to get involved in that probe today in a statement.

His office got information from County Auditor Stan Chambers that there were some irregularities in expense reports Laster Boone turned in. 

The county reimburses employees and elected officials for business miles driven in personal vehicles up to $360 per month and the J-P almost always hits that number, according to sources.

Laster Boone did not answer her phone Friday night, but County Commissioner Ben Perry said he's hoping for the best. 

"Let's hope this investigation works out and possibly is not as one might think it would be.  Everyone is innocent until proven guilty so we're waiting to see what results from the Rangers show," Perry told News Channel 25.

The District Attorney turned the evidence it had over to the Texas Rangers. 

Laster Boone was also questioned a few months ago about employee time cards in her office.
