And then there were thirteen

Another Harris County judge bit the dust today as Judge Reagan Helm of County Criminal Court at Law No. 1 resigned on the eve of a hearing in which the Harris County District Attorney's Office sought to recuse him from all domestic violence cases.

It also comes one day after the long-time court reporter in that court, Don Rymer, was placed on deferred adjudication probation for one year and fined $4,000 for tampering with a government record.

Back in November the DA filed a motion to recuse Judge Helm due to comments he made from the bench that the DA characterized as "belittling."
