Campos resigns job while on suspension

Paul D. Campos resigned from his position as Chief of Police with the City of Yorktown on Friday, September 2, according to Yorktown Mayor Rene Hernandez. “He resigned around noon on Friday,” Hernandez said. Hernandez would not elaborate and could only speculate on Campos’ decision to tender his resignation. Campos was suspended from his duties as police chief in mid-July after an investigation was launched by the Texas Rangers into allegations that Campos asked a 29-year-old woman to show her breasts in exchange for community service hours credit. A search warrant issued around that time stated that Campos is accused of granting the woman community service hour credit  in exchange for sexual acts. The warrant indicated Campos made the requests in June.
