Orange County Sheriff’s Office

Chad Hogan

According to information from the office of Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas Brit Featherston, a former Groves apartment manager was sentenced to 22 months in prison on Jan. 31 for her role in a scheme to defraud HUD of roughly $400,000. The same day, former Orange County Sheriff’s Office detective and spokesperson Chad Hogan was also sentenced to serve one year and one day for his role in the same plot to defraud the federal housing agency.


Orange police have arrested a 28-year-old Orange resident who they say admitted to having sex with a juvenile runaway who was staying at his home but said he did not know she was underage. While police concede that may be true, his Facebook page tells a story of its own, revealing a man on the prowl for sexual satisfaction.
