DALLAS -- Dallas County Commissioners agreed Tuesday to hire outside attorneys for two constables who are accused of misconduct.

Several current and former employees sued the county last month.  Normally, the district attorney would handle representation. 

But because the district attorney is also investigating criminal allegations involving the constables, the commissioners thought it wise to turn to outside counsel.
