From the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association:
The Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association, Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and Fort Bend County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association announce that they are beginning an immediate investigation into whether members of the Harris County District Attorneys Office committed constitutional violations of the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments, committed the crime of official oppression, violated the special ethical duties applicable to prosecutors, and-or violated the mandatory ethical obligations applicable to all lawyers in making public comments during the course of a pending capital murder trial that appear to be calculated to influence the ongoing proceedings in material and detrimental ways that are unrelated to the issues at the trial, appear to be defamatory with respect to trial counsel, and serve no legitimate or valid purpose, but rather only increase the likelihood that the accused is denied a fair 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.
