EDINBURG - The Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office fired 11 deputy trainees for official misconduct and integrity issues. The trainees were also detention officers.
Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino said four of them photographed and distributed what they believed was an upcoming test.
In a statement, the sheriff explained seven others got the document but didn't report it to a supervisor.
"I am very disappointed and dismayed at the action of these 11 individuals," said the sheriff.
The cadets were set to graduate next month.
