Pct. 4 Angelina County Commissioner Bobby Cheshire was officially removed from office by Senior District Judge John Delaney on Monday.

Cheshire was removed from office as a result of the lawsuit Lufkin attorney Bob Flournoy filed against Cheshire in his official capacity as commissioner. Though the document was signed Monday, Cheshire has 30 days to appeal or request a new trial — the judgment is final after 30 days if there has been no contest, according to County Attorney Cary Kirby.
