Another Shot at Injustice

This is going out today to Nico LaHood, the District Attorney of Bexar County. Similar letters are going out to Kim Ogg, the District Attorney of Harris County; and Sharen Wilson, the District Attorney of Tarrant County.

I think Wilson has done the most to fix the problem—her office sent out letters notifying people that they might be entitled to relief from convictions under the void section 33.021(b) of the Texas Penal Code.

But nobody has, as far as I know, taken the obvious step of asking trial courts to appoint counsel to people suffering such convictions.

So that’s what I’m asking.

  1. While I was in Prison, I filed 8 HC’s on this and their charges were overturned. I informed several more but they did not want to chance it? I have sent personal letters out to many people since I have been released but have not received any response.
    I am very proud to be associated with you and your efforts.

  2. Why wouldn’t they send out letters letting people know they are entitled to relief?! Isn’t this letter like a Brady notice? Shouldn’t there be ethical implications?
