His court order stated that he was supposed to be transferred to Haven for Hope as part of his PR bond but the Sheriff’s Office Booking Staff didn’t arrange for his transfer.

He was brought to Haven for Hope.

There’s an internal investigation underway and the Texas Commission on Jail Standards has been notified.
