HARRIS COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY
KIM K. OGG

 
 
October 16, 2018
 
The former press secretary for Houston’s mayor admitted her guilt Tuesday to a charge of Abuse of Official Capacity.
 
Darian Ward agreed to a one-year pre-trial diversion contract after being charged with the Class A Misdemeanor.  
 
During that time, Ward will be supervised by the Harris County Probation Department. She must not commit any new crimes. She must also perform 30 hours of community service and pay a $500 fine.
 
If Ward completes the agreement, she could apply to have the matter expunged.  
 
If she violates the agreement, she faces renewed prosecution for the crime, which carries a penalty of up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
 
“Our democracy depends on the accountability of public officials to the people they represent, “Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said. “When the evidence shows misuse of government resources, we prosecute.”
 
In the written agreement, Ward admits that the value of government property and services she misused was more than $750 and less than $2,500.
