When Brazos County Juvenile Board member Judge Randy Michel appointed attorney Patricia Bonilla Harrison over six other candidates to be a part-time juvenile judge, rumors began to swirl that Harrison was unfit for the position. The Eagle investigated, substantiating the rumors that Harrison was not only underqualified, but also had a "history of alcohol-related arrests." As the process of making open records requests went on, Harrison turned down the post amid rumors that she was having an affair with one of the judges, and the District Attorney's office began its own investigation of the situation. Eventually, Michel "was expelled from his bench" and the state's open records law was strengthened.
