A defense attorney said there was plenty of blame to go around in the failed effort to bring wind energy to Jonestown. The mayor of Jonestown signed the application to secure a $2 million federal stimulus grant. Defendant Charles Malouff’s daughter was president of CM Energies, the contractor awarded the wind turbine project. And attorneys for both the city and company looked over the paperwork.

“But Mayor (Deane) Armstrong isn’t in jail. Dana (Malouff) McCoy isn’t in jail,” defense attorney Jackie Wood said Monday in Travis County District Court. “Charlie’s in jail.”
