State Removes Brooks County Constable Pablo Soliz from Office

A Brooks County Constable was removed from office Friday for failing to show the county commissioners court that he had obtained a permanent peace officers license within 270 days of taking office.

A hearing got underway at the Brooks County Courthouse in Falfurrias Friday as the Attorney General's Office proceeded with their efforts to remove Precinct 3 Constable Pablo Soliz from office. The State said that Soliz failed to provide evidence to the County Commissioners Court that he had obtained a permanent peace officers license within 270 days of taking office. They also say Soliz had been convicted of murder in 1990, and as a convicted felon he is ineligible to hold office.

Soliz was removed from office on the grounds that he had failed to show that he had a permanent peace officers license to the commissioners court. The grounds that he was not eligible to take office due to his prior murder conviction was not immediately accepted and is still pending.

Kiii News Reporter Mike DaSilva attended that hearing and went Live from the Brooks County Courthouse with the details.
