New District Attorney in Montague Co.

09-06-06 - There's a new acting district attorney in Montague County. Assistant DA Jack McGaughey of Nocona was appointed by Governor Rick Perry Tuesday.

The appointment comes after the former DA Tim Cole resigned. Cole was arrested on a drunk driving-related charge at Lake Texoma during the Fourth of July weekend.

McGaughey will serve his new post until the 2008 election and says he intends to run and will likely seek office as a republican.
