Reyna, Durbin, Brady and Blanco

Prosecutors sometimes know a little less law than my ranch dog Emma. That was how and why, a few years ago, a United States Attorney named Thomas P. O’Brien declared that “if any law enforcement officer sees a Mongol wearing his patch, he will be authorized to stop that gang member and literally take the […]

McLennan County, Texas District Attorney Abelino Reyna, who is gratuitously prosecuting 192 people who were at the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco on May 17, 2015, filed a ridiculous “disclosure” in the 19th Judicial District […]

Mooch's Tale

Most readers here know who Justin James “Mooch” DeLoretto is – although you may not know his name. His image has become a cliché that obscures the man.

A self-righteously angry and apparently corrupt judge accused a defendant of not playing fair. A hundred eighty local citizens had their days wasted.

Hollandsworth is a big deal in Texas. At 59, his resume includes jobs as a reporter, columnist, author, producer and screenwriter. His mantelpiece is crowded with awards and […]

On his way out the door yesterday, recently fired United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara unsealed a turgid and bloated, 21 page racketeering indictment of six alleged members of the New Roc City charter of  the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club.
