More Special Prosecutors

 Posted on August 28, 2008 in Uncategorized

I still have no authoritative info on the object of Fort Bend County District Attorney John Healey's appointment as special prosecutor. Along with Healey, his first assistant (Fred Felcman?) was appointed by Judge Belinda Hill of the 230th District Court of Harris County. Judge Hill maintains that the order appointing the duo is sealed. I haven't yet researched whether Texas law allows sealing of such an order.

Meanwhile, rumor has it that George "Mac" Secrest was appointed special prosecutor yesterday by Judge Mary Lou Keel of the 232nd District Court.

If I were in the business of appointing special prosecutors, I wouldn't appoint either a local criminal-defense lawyer or a neighboring county's DA to investigate a recently-retired District Attorney. I think it makes more sense to appoint someone who has never worked with or against the object of the investigation. My guess is that Chuck Rosenthal is not the target of either Healey's or Secrest's investigation.
