Racehorse Haynes in Trial

Richard “Racehorse” Haynes is, as we say in Texas, one tough sumbitch. He tried 11 jury trials last year (did you? I sure didn’t), and he’s in trial again now — at age 82.

I thought that your readers might like to know that opening statements start tomorrow at 9 am in United States v. Nguyen. Mr. Nguyen is accused of being part of a multi state drug and money laundering conspiracy. He is represented by Racehorse Haynes. The government is represented by Joe Magliola. Take care and keep posting.

The trial is in U.S. District Judge Melinda Harmon’s court in Houston. Richard’s client is the last man standing; expect lots of cross-examination of snitches. Richard doesn’t rush a cross-examination, so this could take a while.

    Neither of them are slouches. I tried cases against Racehorse and with Joe. Every once in a while you do have to wake up Joe though.

    Does anyone know how I can get in touch with Racehorse Haynes? My brother has been wrongfully accused 15 years ago. Our attorney passed away two years ago and now we are left in the cold. Please if anyone knows how I can get in touch with him my family and I would greatly appreciate it.
