A judge in Loving County, Texas, has been charged with cattle rustling.

He is accused of working with three others to round up and sell stray cattle. One of them is a sheriff’s deputy.


Judge Skeet Jones is 71 and in the county, which has only 64 residents, the least of any municipality in the United States, is also the chief executive officer and has a salary of $133.000.


The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association said the arrests came after a yearlong investigation.
