Fired tech waiting on Calvert ruling
WAXAHACHIE – Fired Ellis County Sheriffs Office crime scene technician Cindy Kelly, arrested for a driving while intoxicated charge several months ago as her colleagues staked outside and waited for her, is now waiting for a ruling from Ellis County Court at Law No. 2 Judge Gene Calvert to issue a ruling in the case.
The DWI case was overshadowed by the incident report information that was leaked after Kelly was fired for driving a county vehicle after frequenting a bar. Her colleagues, investigators with the ECSO Criminal Investigation Division, were parked down the street and waited for Kelly to pass by.
The dispute over whet-her Kelly was legally drunk is at issue, but Calvert instructed the witnesses in the case not to discuss the matter with the public.
