William Hardin surrendered to authorities in Bosque County on a first-degree felony warrant for Misapplication of Fiduciary Property. The charges and arrest are the result of an investigation by the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association. Hardin was employed as a ranch manager since 2014 by a Bosque County ranch owner. He is accused of misappropriating ranch assets and equipment throughout the course of his employment. Because the value of misappropriated assets exceeds $300,000, the charge is elevated to a first-degree felony.
