After the formal sentencing, Brock was returned to Refugio by Lt. Gary Wright and Lt. Martin Deleon and taken to the county jail. Up until Thursday, Brock has been free on bail.
In a plea bargain agreement in May, Brock pleaded guilty to misusing confiscated drug forfeiture money, a third degree felony.
“We put him in a separate cell for his protection pending his transfer to Texas Department of Corrections,” said Sheriff Robert Bolcik.
The former police chief was transported by local deputies on Wednesday to a unit in Huntsville to begin serving his sentence.
In September of 2009, a Refugio grand jury handed down three indictments for crimes of felony theft by a public servant, felony misappropriation of fiduciary property, and abuse of official capacity.
Exactly one month short of three years from the day he was indicted, Brock began serving his sentence.
