County Attorney for Aransas County Removed from Office

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - The 343rd District Court has ordered the County Attorney for Aransas County, Richard Bianchi, to be removed from office immediately.

The court says Bianchi became a candidate for County Court-At-Law on June 4, 2013 and at that time he would be automatically resigned from office. Bianchi did not step down from office because he says the Aransas County Commissioners Court never appointed a replacement.

The court claims Bianchi is holding the office unlawfully. Bianchi defeated Aransas County Court-At-Law incumbent William Adams during the March 4, 2014 Republican Primary.
