What if State presents no evidence but defense atty subpoenas witnesses for fishing expedition? Usually, Court will find no PC if State puts on no evidence, but in this instance Court says it will allow Defense to call witnesses even though State is putting on no evidence unless there is caselaw that says he can't do this. There is no caselaw (that I could find anyway) because why would this ever be appealed? Usually, Court makes its decision in the absence of State's evidence only (not after defense goes on fishing expedition by calling the witnesses). Anybody have anything?

Dismiss the case. Without a case, the judge can't ignore the law and hold a hearing.

Dismiss, get a true bill, then rearrest. The defendant gets all of their Constitutional rights and a second trip to jail and a brand new bonding fee. They might also have some hard questions for their counsel.

Agree strongly with Bradley and Clay.

We routinely dismiss cases after a request for examining trial, then indict, if the case merits indictment.

What's wrong, John, can't your local judges read?

John, baby, don't let some Austin lobbyist call you out like that without a comeback.

*ROFLMAO* Thanks for entertaining me while I work late tonight. And JR - there are probably enough of us in north Texas who might take you up on that offer for beers - any one else see that in the deleted post before JR hit delete? Wasn't that a round for everyone on the forum? Wink

I DID see that post, and the one I saw invited ALL Texas prosecutors to his house this weekend for a round table discussion on this issue, beer gratis of the host. Is that the one you saw Gretch? Big Grin

It's that pesky post number that gives you away, JR, er, I mean, Capt. Needa. Do you want us to bring snacks?

I think there is a section on changing your user name in The Perfect Plea. Scott Brumley told me about it. Wink

I have the perfect image for this thread but alas, can't post it because it is on my computer and I don't know a place on the web that has the image.

Captain Needa, I forgive you.

If you can't find a picture of a beer, I'll take the real deal.
