Morning Crime Blotter News

  • Skeletal remains of two infants found in Tarrant County
  • Dirk Nowitzki's ex sentenced to 5 years in the hoosegow
  • Some guy earned himself 3 days in the Wise County Jail this morning for not following through with the terms of a divorce decree. (He represented himself and seemed well prepared. Didn't change the facts, but well prepared nonetheless.) Edit: I really don't have any details since I only caught the end of the hearing.
  • Steven York had a second court appearance today. Looks like a second lawyer is involved in the case and it might be Larry Moore out of Fort Worth (but I'm not sure.)

Larry is pretty hard to miss.

For 12:57 PM's question--the divorce case was most likely a Motion For Enforcement, which decides whether or not there was contempt of court in the violation of the decree, which can involve criminal penalties.

pro se divorce man was previously ordered to participate in a pshchological evaluation. He did not do so and was ordered to jail for 4 days.

Barry,

Steven York admitted to intentionally killing Sgt. Randy White. What is his defense? How many lawyers do the tax payers have to pay for when he has admitted his guilt on tape? What does having one more lawyer accomplish?

I just don't get it.

He won't step on our "pink granite" steps on the way out of our PRECIOUS courthouse.

Give York a choice. Two cops, no weapons, quiet pasture. Or Twelve average Wise county residents with rifles.

Bet he takes the firing squad

P.S.-- Send the lawyers out there with him. We'd all be better off

They are welcome to send Steven York over to my house.

For those of you judging the actions of others, I hope you end up with a drug addict in your family.

Don't you know me by now?

9:05------Just shut up! You sound like a f ing nutcase. Anybody who seems to take a outrageous stance on anything always seems to be covering for some shortcomings. What yours?

Hey 7:38...

Is that his defense? I'm a drug addict?

If so, TO DAMN BAD. That doesn't work with me or our legal system. They don't show a cop killer 'mercy' because he was methed out.

If you're such a Steven York fan and you knew he had a drug problem but you chose to do nothing to try and help him, then you will be judged. Shame shame shame on you.

The methed out Steven York intentionally killed Sgt Randy White and that is a tragedy. His family must muddle through without him every day. His daughter is growing up with just the memory of her father.

So, if you 7:38, thing Yorks drugged out ways somehow excuse him murdering my friend...screw you.

PS- Hate? We have not even begun to hate, for we have yet to stop crying.

8:20 i guess the cops he went to chose a "high-speed" chase to help him? that seems to be what caused him to kill the officer on purpose.if they knew who they were chasing, all they had to do was back off and get him at his house. the high-speed chase was unnecessary. now who will be judged??
bless officer's white family, but his friends could have prevented all this.

11:49,

Let me get this straight..the police officers killed Sgt White? Their decisions killed him? Is that what you're saying?

I wanted to make sure I understood your comments correctly.

Anonymous said...

the officers involved in the chase definately contributed to the death. their persuit of york was senseless if you ask me. i'm just saying..they knew who york was & knew he was involved in drugs. it's tragic, yes & i see your point of view. but some police chases are not needed. this was just one of them.
i respect the law & those that enforce them. but, there are cases when some of them go to excess. you know some of them i'm sure.
bless you & have a nice day..

If I had 20 or so cop cars behind me, sirens blaring, I'd probably pull over.

I'm just saying.

1:06...if you don't know what you are talking about..my suggestion to you is to keep quiet!!!!

1:54...EXACTLY!!!!! BUT...when you have stolen cars and are on drugs....

I'm with you 2:16,

I'm just can't stand it when people blame the police for playing a part in Sgt White's death.

I understand that York was a meth head driving a stolen car. But, he still murdered a police officer. Saying he wasn't in his "right mind" is no excuse and certainly no defense.

Yes, high speed chases do somtimes end badly. However, York was heading to Bridgeport at almost 100 miles an hour at just a little after 3:30 when school was getting out and buses were hitting the streets.

I wonder what everyone would say about the police if they had just let York keep going (by not chasing him) and he had killed a child?
