Hidalgo County Sheriff Fires 11 Amid Test Cheating Scandal
HIDALGO COUNTY - Eleven Hidalgo County Sheriff's Department Deputy Trainees are fired after some of them tried to cheat on an upcoming test.
The Sheriff's Office reports that four of the deputy trainees conspired to download and print a copy of the test.
The four trainers then passed copies of the test to seven other trainees who Sheriff Trevino said failed to report it to a supervisor. Sheriff Trevino reported that the deputy trainees were all fired on Thursday because of dishonesty issues.
