More on the truth (or lack thereof)

The court reporter in Harris County Criminal Court at Law No. 1 was indicted on charges on tampering with a government record. He is expected to surrender to authorities.  The county criminal courts handle Class A and B misdemeanor offenses for which the punishment is no more than one year in the county jail and a fine not to exceed $4,000.

The reporter is represented by two former Harris County (Criminal) District Court judges in a wonderful bit of irony. Apparently they have undergone a conversion and now believe that a citizen brought before the court is innocent unless proven guilty.

Seems that not that long ago...
