HOUSTON --Liberty radio station KSHN on Wednesday night is saying former County Judge Phil Fitzgerald has confirmed he's been indicted by a federal grand jury, but doesn't yet know what the charges are. The feds are mum, but it's likely any indictment handed down has been temporarily sealed. It was a joint investigation by 13 Undercover and the Cleveland Advocate Newspaper that sparked the criminal probe. Our hidden cameras showed trucks owned by the then-county judge were used in the Hurricane Ike cleanup in his own county. Later, we reported his family may have made a million dollars from the cleanup.
