Update: 2 months in jail, then probation.

TO recap: Sheriff Roberts and County Attorney Tidwell got jail time for their role in this sordid misuse of power, and the doctor at the center of this mess now cannot practice medicine.

We’ll have to wait to see if he gets jail time from this.

AUSTIN A doctor accused of retaliating against two whistle-blowing West Texas nurses has agreed to surrender his medical license.

Dr. Rolando G. Arafiles signed an agreed order with the Texas Medical Board Friday stating he will stop practicing medicine.

Unfortunately, it’s still not over. Arafiles is still under indictment for aggravated perjury in Andrews County for his statements in the Nurse trial.

None of this restores the careers of the two nurses who were the victims of this.
