    I don't see how she couldn't. They got the information through a search warrant and the defense has also had the information.

    Botham's mom is the epitome of elegance and grace on the stand. Such difficult but important testimony. I understand he was very much like that as well.

    You may feel it answers your question. Understand that grand jury are average citizens. Not politicians. And they remain anonymous.

    I believe the people of that county felt there should be accountability here for the actions of what appear to be a rogue cop.

    What would the prudent response be by a reasonable person -- the beauty of a jury of your peers.

    That's disingenuous. The GJ does not hear info and then scour the statutes to find the charge. The DA prepares the forms and requests the charge, in this case murder, of the GJ. Then the GJ true bills or no bills the charge that the DA requested.

    What do it all mean? charges, bills, no bills (this is the rhetorical part).

    Anytime someone trained to shoot a gun, pulls the trigger they are trained to shoot to kill.

    My thought was that if he had wanted to be a police officer, he'd have passed his polygraph, paid attention to his training, and probably been a model officer.

    I'm with you. Except I don't think she feels awful about taking his life. Based on her performance on the stand and her conduct directly after she seemed more concerned with herself. Also, her social media posts or likes indicate something to me about her character.

    I hope I am wrong.

    Yes. Sort of. It would be based on what comes out at trial, not on charging decisions. So what came out at trial. So they would argue the facts don't support the conviction.

    And based on the facts here and the law in TX, she will lose on those grounds.

    Absolutely. Unfortunately (moo) inequality in trials ($$$) varies too much. Such as the IN mom getting 41 years vs Affluenza Boy skating.

    Btw: I appreciate all you bring to the table.

    What an absolute light he was. What an incredible loss to our world.

    How dare she take him. I am so angry she thinks she thought she could get away with it. How dare she.

    So if she is sentenced to 10 or less years she can stay out of prison until her appeals are exhausted? That could take years!
