A Travis County grand jury has indicted former CPRIT executive Jerald Cobbs regarding an improperly vetted grant to a Dallas-based pharmaceutical company

The indictment charges Cobbs with presenting a grant proposal for Peloton Therapeutics to the agency’s oversight committee in August 2010, without revealing that it hadn’t gone through the agency’s review process. Cobbs is charged with “securing the execution of a document by deception,” a first-degree felony.

The Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas first came under fire in 2012, when an audit revealed the agency doled out more than $50 million outside of the proper channels.

Cobb has since retired from the agency.
