Former Dallas city manager Jerry Wyatt indicted on 17 crimes

Former Dallas city manager Jerry Wyatt was indicted Wednesday on 17 criminal charges, according to Chief Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Gaddis.

Wyatt was indicted on two counts of first-degree aggravated theft, five counts of computer crime, all felonies, and five counts each of official misconduct and falsifying business records, which are misdemeanors.

A warrant is out for his arrest, she said.

Dallas Police Department announced its investigation into Wyatt in early July, focusing on inconsistencies found through the city’s financial department.

Wyatt resigned on July 2 after serving about five years as city manager. Prior to that appointment, Wyatt served as the city’s community development director for nine years.

He received a bachelor’s degree in regional development in 1993 from the University of Arizona and a certificate in public administration from Willamette University in 2005. Before coming to Dallas, Wyatt served four years as community development director in Hollbrook, Ariz.
