The Larry Pack Law Suit Against Wood County

E-mail Print PDF

 No matter what you think about Larry Pack, you should be interested in and following this case. Wood County had been controlled by the Democrats for decades but the tide had started to turn Republican. Larry Pack and others were leading the GOP charge to make responsible changes.

He ran into long time Democratic County DA Marcus Taylor, who saw an "opening" and brought Judge Pack down. Taylor did the investigation and the case was brought by the Texas Attorney General's office. It forever changed the life of an honest public servant, Larry Pack. He was labeled and convicted of a felony. This forced him to resign his office as JP of Precinct 3, Wood County Texas. The conviction was later over turned on appeal, but it couldn't remove the terrible stain that had been placed on him forever. How would you like to have his legal bills? W.C.
