Former East Texas Constable Sentenced

Joshua Black

A Smith County jury has convicted Smith County Precinct 2 Constable Joshua Black of abusing his position of power. The court sentenced him to six months in jail, and then Judge Austin Reeve Jackson officially removed Black from his elected position as constable. Black had used his work to solicit sex from a woman who employed his services as a visitation supervisor. Black still faces a charge of Official Oppression involving another alleged victim.
