Montague Co. Investigating A Sexual Assault Claim Against A Judge

The district attorney's office in Montague county is investigating an attempted sexual assault complaint made against late Montague County Judge Ted Winn.

Winn was found dead at his home on July 30th from what could have been a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

District Attorney Jack McGaughey says the complaint was totally un-related to his duties and capacity as a judge.

The Texas Rangers are investigating the claim which is normal since it is against a local elected official.

The complaint was for an alleged offense that occurred in March where McGaughey says physical force was applied with intent to commit a sexual assault.
