A former Bowie county jail administrator pleads guilty to tampering with a government record.
Harry Bittlinger Jr. was arrested March 3, 2009 and charged with two indictments of tampering with a government record.
He was one of 20 people in the 2009 jail scandal that shut down the facility for several months and forced the county to spend more than $1 million for repairs for it to be certified.
Bittlinger pled guilty to one indictment related to falsifying a fire marshal's report, while the other indictment was dismissed. He received three years probation.
