FBI alerts judges and prosecutors that their courthouse calls and texts were monitored

Judges, prosecutors, defense lawyers and others in Texas who conduct business at the Bexar County Courthouse got letters from the FBI recently telling them that their phone calls and text conversations had been monitored.

At the center of the eavesdropping is a lawyer who is cooperating in a judicial corruption investigation. He told Fox 29 News that he has worn a wire but is not facing any charges.

The San Antonio Express-News provides details about the letters, at least one of which was shown to the newspaper.
