Former LMISD Police Chief Russel Washington gets $83,000

LA MARQUE — A jury Thursday awarded the former school district police chief $83,236.

The jury of five men and five women found that Russel Washington, who was fired in a 4-3 vote by La Marque school trustees in 2010, was given a chance to defend his employment to the board: jurors found that former Trustee Cynthia Bell-Malveaux, who voted to terminate the chief’s contract, had a bias that deprived Washington of due process and a fair hearing. At the time of the vote, Bell-Malveaux had a pending defamation lawsuit against Washington.
