The Houston City Council member who – as a bail bondsman – found himself in the middle of an alleged murder-for-hire plot involving a prominent Montrose veterinarian and her boyfriend is set to speak about the incident Wednesday.

Michael Kubosh, who operates a prominent bail bond business, has said he alerted police to the alleged plot involving 39-year-old Leon Phillip Jacob and vet Valerie Busick McDaniel.


Kubosh, who supplied the bail bond for a previous stalking charge for Jacob, told police in February that he was troubled by things Jacob said about the case.

Kubosh has told the Chronicle he believed Jacob was asking for help in a covert plan.

“He told me that he paid somebody quite a bit of money to take care of this matter,” Kubosh said. “I felt like he was trying to implicate me in something.”

Kubosh, who has been a councilman since 2013, became alarmed and contacted Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo directly.

He is expected to answer questions stemming from that incident, and address concerns about his safety after his identity was revealed in open court.
