A Return to the Grand Jury

The third floor of the Harris County Criminal Justice Center seems to be a very busy place this morning.  As expected, one of the Grand Juries meeting today is reviewing the case against Precinct Six Constable Victor Trevino.

What was not expected, however, was the presence of the Texas Rangers who were last seen investigating the Lykos Administration for their involvement in stalking investigating the members of the 185th Grand Jury.  In addition to the Rangers, former foreperson of the 185th Grand Jury, Trisha Pollard present, along with former-Chief Investigator for the D.A.'s Office, Don McWilliams, and former-1st Assistant (and bench pressing champion) Jim Leitner.

I have to admit that I'm surprised.  Based on what I had been hearing for some time, I thought the Rangers' investigation into Lykos had tapered off.  As noted in this post, I was skeptical about whether or not criminal charges would be filed on this in the first place.

This may be much ado about nothing.  Perhaps the Special Prosecutor on the case is just presenting his findings to the Grand Jury to wrap up his investigation.  The only thing that is confusing about that theory is there is not an explanation as to why they would be calling witnesses.

I'll keep you posted.

Sometimes when a matter is being presented to a Grand Jury for indictment or no-bill, witnesses are asked to be present in case the Grand Jury has any further questions. This matter should have already been resolved by the Prosecutor Pro-Tem but at least it is finally moving forward.

What a joke on the tax payer. Sheriff Garcia will come to regret this decision. This deal was worked out some months ago. I'd hate to think I was paying that kind of money for the bad advice he'll be getting. The only good thing about it is Leitner is no longer screwing up the DA's Office.

Shame on you Adrian.

So do we have 3/5ths now?

There goes the Sheriff's department. Maybe all those hours in the gym networking paid off after all. Joni should have been over there too if she wanted to hang around Harris County for some time longer.

Does anyone know if the Grand Jury actually heard testimony?
