This is an incredible story

A Nueces County grand jury on Friday indicted the executive director of the Texas Commission on Jail Standards on two felony counts related to the release of information about an inmate suicide.

Adan Munoz, 62, was indicted on two counts of misuse of official information, according to online court records.

District Attorney Anna Jimenez said the charges stem from allegations that Munoz released a document to KIII-TV reporter Rudy Trevino and Caller-Times reporter Jaime Powell that related to a suicide at the Nueces County Jail.

Munoz has not been arrested and said he only heard about the allegations from reporters. He had no further comment on the indictment.

Nueces County Sheriff Jim Kaelin said Munoz responded to a public records request from at least one reporter by sending a document from an ongoing criminal investigation at the Nueces County Jail.
