Robertson County's Ex-Top Prosecutor Gets Nights in Jail

Former Robertson County District Attorney John Paschall will have to give up his law license after pleading guilty to a felony charge of misusing money from an estate for which he was an executor.

Paschall — who served six terms as Robertson County’s top prosecutor before going into private practice — will have to report to the Brazos County Detention Center on Feb. 8 to begin serving a sentence that requires him to spend 30 nights behind bars during the week on a work release schedule. He’ll turn himself in at 7:30 p.m. and be released the next morning at 4 a.m.

He was also placed on 10 years probation, issued a $1,000 fine and will be required to pay restitution, though an amount has not yet been set.

Bryan attorney Jim James represented Paschall.

“John Paschall is a good person,” James said. “He’s a friend of mine. He made a mistake and he’s going to go on with his life.”
