From the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association:

The Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association, Texas Criminal DefenseLawyers Association, and Fort Bend County Criminal Defense LawyersAssociation announce that they are beginning an immediate investigation intowhether members of the Harris County District Attorneys Office committedconstitutional violations of the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments, committed thecrime of official oppression, violated the special ethical dutiesapplicable to prosecutors, and-or violated the mandatory ethicalobligations applicable to all lawyers in making public comments during thecourse of a pending capital murder trial that appear to be calculated toinfluence the ongoing proceedings in material and detrimental ways that areunrelated to the issues at the trial, appear to be defamatory with respectto trial counsel, and serve no legitimate or valid purpose, butrather only increase the likelihood that the accused is denied afair trial. The remarks and their timing were inappropriate,improper, and subject to the sternest possible condemnation.

Here's what the Harris County District Attorney's Office did wrong this time.
