Bandera County Republican Party Chair Conrad Streigl and Treasurer Cari Rene Leith were ordered to resign as part of a pretrial intervention order signed Thursday, Sept. 28.

Streigl, 74, and Leith, 63, entered a plea of no contest last Thursday to the charge of fraudulent securing of document execution, according to documents obtained by the Bulletin Monday from the Bandera County District Clerk.

The plea of no contest led to a pretrial agreement placing both on probation through Dec. 1.

The two were arrested and indicted for the charges in January.

As part of the pretrial agreement signed by both Streigl and Leith, the duo were ordered to resign their positions in the county party, follow stipulations of their probation and each pay a fine of $3,000 and bond of $500.
