A black eye
Ex-police chief of Helotes is sentenced to jail
By Craig Kapitan - Express-News
Former Helotes Police Chief Morton Howard Ault took on a new role Friday — Bexar County Jail inmate — after a judge ordered a six-month term for a $33,000 swindle involving police car repairs.
Ault, 50, was escorted to a holding cell by deputies immediately after state District Judge Ron Rangel announced the incarceration — a condition of eight years deferred adjudication probation.
The defendant, currently a used car salesman, will be allowed to leave jail during work hours. He also was ordered to continue paying restitution to Helotes.
