Interactive graphic tracks KTRK 13 Undercover investigation into Harris County Precinct 6 Constable Victor Trevino’s office


Call him Wayne Dolcefino 2.0.

You may have seen ABC 13’s investigative reporter’s pieces looking at Harris County Precinct 6 Constable Victor Trevino's office.

Dolcefino’s reports began with revelations that Trevino may have broken state ethics laws. In the wake of Dolcefino’s findings, the Harris County District Attorney has launched an investigation.
Here’s what is new: A handy guide for viewers and readers so you can see step-by-step how Dolcefino conducted his investigation. We were pretty impressed with the interactive graphic, and we applaud how ABC 13 is showcasing its content differently for an Internet audience.

Texas Watchdog knows the power that interactive graphics can have to boost stories and inform readers, which is why we use them here at the Watchdog site.

Our most recent interactive can be found here with our story about the intertwined ethics problems at the Houston Independent School District, Houston Community College, Harris County and the Port of Houston Authority.

Dolcefino’s new investigative producer Kevin Hirten tells Texas Watchdog there are more interactive graphics to come with future KTRK Undercover 13 investigations. We think that’s a great addition to a great investigative unit.
