Criminal Justice Visual Observations From This Morning

Lousy picture, but this guy was a cross between Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash. What got my attention even more was that he was carrying a gun and had a badge that said, I think, "County Attorney."  I saw some local deputies talking to him and it sounded like he had "heard a tip" that someone he was looking for would be on the 10:30 a.m. docket. I'm guessing he's an investigator with a prosecutor's office that is not here in Wise County.

And while waiting on the docket myself, I was reading "The Texas Prosecutor" which had a feature article by a prosecutor in Georgetown who pursued someone in Justice of the Peace Court for the Class C offense of Refusing To Pay Toll. I'm not sure anyone every had a Class C article published before.
