Republic of Texas officials face charges in Kerr County

A local father and son facing criminal charges related to their status as Republic of Texas officials contend they're being illegally persecuted for their politics. Prosecutors say they're merely upholding the laws of the state of Texas.  Charles Tiller IV, 41, is accused of falsely identifying himself as a peace officer for having an emblem on his vehicle that featured a star and the words “Bexar County Sheriff's Department” and “Republic of Texas.”   Tiller said there's nothing illegal about the emblem or his role as deputy with the group that asserts Texas is an independent nation whose government was reactivated in 2005 after 163 years of dormancy.
