No bail for man who knocked down a 79YO black man
The bail application of Conrad Barret, who is charged with a hate crime, was denied, something that Barret's lawyer said they have been expecting.
Houston criminal attorney George Parnham said that according to the judge, his 27-year-old client might avoid a criminal conviction. He also poses as a danger to the public.
Barret was charged after he attacked an old, black man; filmed the act and showed it to someone, who turned out to be an arson investigator.
Barrett is looking at more than a 10-year prison term and a fine of more than $200,000 should he get convicted.
Man gets prison for family assault
Lonnie Jones Jr. will be imprisoned for 40 years after a jury convicted him for hitting his girlfriend several times in the face when she refused to hand him money for drugs.
Willis Smith, a defense attorney with an office in Houston, asked for the minimumâa 25-year sentence for Jones but the judge thought otherwise.
Jones was eligible to be sentenced to life imprisonment because of his previous convictions which also included assault.
Brett Ligon, the district attorney, said that the sentence has made the community a safer place as Jones has been violently violating the laws of Texas.
Man convicted for laundering money for drug cartel accused of trying to bribe judge
Franceso Colorado Cessa, convicted of laundering money for the Zetas, is facing new charges for trying to bribe the judge who had sentenced him.
Charged along with Cessa are his son, Francisco Colorado Cessa Jr. and Ramon Segura Flores, his associate in the business.
The three allegedly conspired to hand more than a million dollars in an attempt for Judge Sam Sparks to give Cessa a lesser sentence.
Just hours before the bribery charges were filed, Sparks had handed Cessa the maximum prison term for laundering money for the drug cartel, which had him buying and selling racehorses.
Mike DeGeurin, a defense attorney from Houston who is representing the three, did not comment regarding the bribery charges.
The three accused have yet to enter a plea.
Houston woman convicted of killing boy of 12
A life in prison will be the next step for Mona Nelson who was convicted of abducting and murdering Jonathan Foster, 12, a day before Christmas in 2010.
Foster's body was found in a burned state, enfolded by a carpet and dumped on a ditch.
Nelson admitted having emptied the contents of a thrash can on the ditch but that she had not known that it had also contained Foster's remains.
According to Allen Tanner, Houston defense attorney, Nelson had told the judge she was innocent after the verdict was read.
The prosecutors took no chances in building a solid case against Nelson but they stop short of asking for a death penalty.

Irish nanny facing murder in death of 1-year-old girl denied bail
Aisling Brady McCarthy, a nanny from Ireland, will have to await her murder trial in jail after she was denied bail.
McCarthy is accused of the death of Remah Sabir, a one-year-old girl who had suffered a head trauma while under her care. She was brought in to the hospital and died two days later.
However, McCarthy may get a reprieve after the judge got frustrated with the prosecutors' delay in handing over medical proof which could prove critical for her defense.
David Meier, a criminal attorney in Boston defending for McCarthy, said that the evidence they were asking for is necessary to the case.
McCarthy's defense said they are not ready to go to trial in April because of the delay.

For her sentence, Davis will be serving the community for 20 hours.
She will also be made to pay $200 as fine.
Defending for Davis was Atlanta DUI lawyer William "Bubba" Head.
Sexually abusing four differently-abled women nets man prison
William Walker was handed a minimum of 24 years and a maximum of 60 years in prison after admitting to rape charges.
Walker submitted a guilty plea to allegations that he raped four women who are disabled in a span of 12 days in 2012.
The judge said Walker is a danger to society and rehabilitating him may not help.
Philadelphia criminal defense lawyer Catherine Berryman said Walker was abused while growing up.
Cop gets two months for shooting trainee during an exercise
William S. Kern, a Baltimore Police instructor, was handed a 60-day jail stay, for shooting Raymond Gray, a police recruit, while they were doing exercises.
Kern, who has been in service for 19 years, told the court during his trial that he had brought a live gun to the exercises and he had accidentally used it instead of the training weapon.
Gray was hit in the head and was blinded in one eye when Kern fired his gun through the window to show the recruits the danger of lingering near the door, the window or the hallway.
Kern said that he brought his gun to the training for the safety of the recruits because the facility where they were having their exercises is not secure.
Baltimore defense attorney Shaun F. Owens had argued for Kern's release saying that his client's eventual dismissal from the service would already be enough of a punishment.
Kern is on a 60-day suspension while the Baltimore Police conducts an investigation within its ranks.
Gray's family, who expressed dissatisfaction with the sentence, has also filed a civil lawsuit in relation to the incident and is being represented by Baltimore litigator A. Dwight Pettit.
16-year-old charged with hate crime, will be tried as an adult
Richard Thomas may only be 16 years old but he will be facing the charges filed against him as an adult.
Thomas is facing several charges including "hate crime" after he set another teenager, Luke "Sasha" Fleischman, 18, on fire.
Both were riding on a bus when the incident happened with Fleischman wearing a skirt.
Fleischman's parents said their son does not identify himself either as a male or female.
According to police, Thomas had told them he set Fleischman on fire because he is homophobic.
San Francisco defense attorney Michael Cardoza said his client, Thomas, if convicted would be facing a longer sentence because of the hate crime charge.
