New Developments in Ruel Hamilton Corruption Case

Earlier in the year, Ruel Hamilton was placed under house arrest for improper contact with a witness in his bribery case, according to a Dallas Morning News article from August 5th. In it, they say;

A Dallas developer accused of paying bribes to a city council member has been placed on house arrest by a federal judge pending trial for trying to influence a government witness in his case, court records say. Ruel Hamilton, 64, phoned his former employee, Leslie Martin, several times in January and suggested that she might not want to cooperate with FBI agents, whom he referred to as a bunch of storm troopers’ and liars, prosecutors said. That was just weeks after the government had disclosed that Martin was a potential witness in the case, according to court documents.”

New developments are now coming to light in the Ruel Hamilton case. New charges and transcripts have emerged tied to the case, according to an NBC 5 DFW article published on December 5th. In it, they say: 

The additional charges are contained in a “superseding” indictment that also includes transcripts of what appear to be secretly recorded conversations on how to cheat campaign finance rules. Prosecutors have added a bribery conspiracy charge against Hamilton, who was already facing charges of bribing former council members Carolyn Davis and Dwaine Caraway in exchange for city funding on a low-income housing project run by the developer.”

This is just one of the corruption scandals that hit Dallas City this year.
