I Have An Answer:

Because the guy is in a cold cell behind bars!!! That Q and A is is from the Texas District and County Attorney's Message Board and "JB" is John Bradley who is the DA of Williamson County --- easily the most conservative county in Texas. Yep, they would put Wise County to shame. I've dogged him on here for years but he's actually emailed me and seems like a nice guy. Last year he asked permission to use screen shots of The Blog for his presentation at the Texas Advanced Criminal Law Seminar where he was going to speak on lawyers, blogs, and legal ethics. I said "sure." I've still yet to hear what he said.

He was just 'killing you softly' Barry to try and get you to back off a little.

JB is a really nice guy. He was a guest lecturer in my Texas Criminal Procedure class a few years ago. I enjoyed his lecture, even though it was mainly war stories from his career. (That so often happens with guest lecturers froms practicing attorneys.) He was nice enough though to stay after class a bit to answer questions.

Its hard to believe that Williamson County is so conservative, since it neighbors Travis County, which is quite liberal.

Maybe I am missing something, but I don't see the hurry either.

Let's say his attorney gets bond reduced in Brazos County and he is able to be released...he'll still have bond in the other county. So why hurry?

It only takes a day to transport the defendant to the home county from the county of arrest. And the judge with the indictment has to hold the hearing with the defendant present. So, again, what's the hurry to bypass the law?

I might be wrong, but I figure the guy wants to get out of jail as quickly as possible. Sometimes, for whatever reason, transfers take a while. So, the sooner the hearing takes place, the sooner the defendant has the chance to post his bond.

Well, of course the guy wants to get out of jail fast. That is not an excuse for bypassing due process. Sometimes the liberal bias of this blog... Well, I guess I won't go there.
