Former sheriff charged as radio pirate

WESTLAKE HILLS, Texas (KXAN) - A former Travis County Sheriff, Raymond Frank, is being charged for breaking the law by running his own pirate radio station and illegally broadcasting the controversial Alex Jones radio show.

Alex Jones, who describes his radio show as "conspiracy-tinted site containing strong opposition to socialism, communism, and the New World Order," said he had no idea Frank was illegally broadcasting his show.

The FCC adopted the forfeiture order on Nov. 5 and ordered former Travis County sheriff Raymond Frank pay $10,000 for "willfull and repeated violation of Section 301 of the Communications Act of 1934." Frank was the head of the Travis County Sheriff's Office from 1972 to 1981.
