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.

Los Angeles lawyers insist on client's release
Blair Berk and Leonard Levine, defense lawyers in Los Angeles, are arguing for the release of their client, Darren Sharper, who used to play in the National Football League.
Sharper has submitted a not guilty plea to sexually assaulting two women in Los Angeles.
However, Sharper remains on indefinite custody with no bail after prosecutors pointed out that he also has an arrest warrant issued by authorities in Louisiana.
Sharper's lawyers are insisting on his release because no case has been filed yet pertaining to the Louisiana arrest warrant.
$600,000 bail set for man who threatened Seattle mayor
Neither the prosecution nor the defense got what they wanted when the judge ordered Mitchell Munro Taylor to remain in jail and set the bail at $600,000.
Eric Lindell, the Seattle criminal lawyer defending for Taylor, had asked for a $10,000 bail saying that his client has not been taking his medicines for Asperger's Syndrome.
This was countered by the prosecution, who sought a $1 million bail.
Lindell was jailed when he posted several threatening messages on Seattle Mayor Ed Murray's Facebook page.
He also posted a threat which authorities believed targeted Kshama Sawant, the first socialist to have become a member of the City Council.
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.
20 years in prison for murder conviction in nightclub shooting
A murder conviction will have Mark Anthony Garcia spending 20 years in prison for the death of Michael Angelo Morales.
Morales was shot to death outside a nightclub in 2008.
Garcia's first murder trial ended in a mistrial but he was not so lucky in the second trial.
Albert Acevedo, a defense attorney in San Antonio, said that his client, Garcia, was not the killer.
Instead he was the one who tried to stop another man, Hector Lozano, from shooting Morales.
Lozano is still awaiting for his own trial.
Former deputy gets five years for punching teenager
David Morrow, who used to be the deputy of the Adams County, has been handed a five-year prison sentence for punching a teenager who was strapped to a gurney.
Morrow said he was sorry that the teenager was hurt because of what he did.
The teenager was causing a disturbance to which Morrow and other police officers have responded.
The police decided to take the teenager to the hospital because he was intoxicated and was being belligerent.
However, while he was strapped to a gurney, Morrow had hit the teenager in the face with his fist.
The sentence may still change as the judge had agreed to schedule another hearing to re-assess Morrow's sentence.
Donald Sisson, a defense attorney in Denver, said the case was not a usual one and thus Morrow's sentence should be re-evaluated.
