Dissent in the ranks

There seems to be more than a little dissent in the ranks over on the 6th Floor at 1201 Franklin according to this piece in the Houston Chronicle.

Now whether the four senior district attorneys are opposed to Ms. Lykos' plan to prevent defendants in the country illegally from receiving probation or deferred adjudication because it would clog the courts with more trial cases or due to equal protection issues (I'm sure that's it), remains to be seen.

Whatever the reason, there is a schism developing in the Harris County District Attorney's Office with senior prosecutors coming out against Ms. Lykos' proposal in this instance and with grumblings in the ranks after the Batson incident last month.
