North Texas District Attorney to Resign After DWI Arrest

Tim ColeEarly in the morning on July 5, 2006, District Attorney Tim Cole was arrested on drunk driving charges at Lake Texoma Lodge in Kingston, Oklahoma. Cole’s blood-alcohol level was at 0.15 – Oklahoma’s state’s legal limit is 0.08. Cole was arrested for DUI and was also found carrying a weapon. 
The following morning, district attorney for Montague, Archer, and Clay counties, Tim Cole, reported that he would be resigning due to the charges, although he did not mention when. 
Cole had been re-elected to another four-year term in 2004, and won several high-profile cases in his past. 
Cole was set to try the murder case of former Nocona nurse, Vickie Dawn Jackson, accused of killing ten of her patients. The case was to begin in October. Due to intense pretrial publicity, the case is being moved to San Angelo and will most likely be delayed as a result of Cole’s pending resignation.
