Craig Watkins, the Dallas County District Attorney has been held in contempt.

During a court hearing on Thursday  Watkins was asked about alleged attorney misconduct.

Watkins refused to testify and cited privileges such as client-attorney.

Judge Lena Levario did not allow him to utilize those privileges due to the fact that other people from his office had openly discussed the matter.

Watkins still refused to answer two questions and Levario held him in contempt.

The judge did not immediately impose any punishment and Watkins was allowed to leave the courtroom.

The district attorney’s office is accused of going after Al Hill III for mortgage fraud as a favor for a friend and political donor.
