Prosecutors in Ken Paxton's fraud trail want payment

Special prosecutors in the criminal case against State Attorney General Ken Paxton want the trial delayed until they get paid.

They were hired when the Collin County district attorney, a friend of Paxton, recused himself from the case. But now they say they’re owed more than $250,000.

They are battling both Collin County Commissioners and a taxpayer lawsuit over their legal bills.

Jury selection was supposed to begin next month in McKinney. Paxton is accused of urging people to invest in a company without revealing his own role in it.
