If this is true, I'm sounding the alarm. You have the right to a public trial.

See Lilly v. State, 365 S.W.3d 321 (Tex.Crim.App.2012) Trial in chapel of a maximum security prison violated right to public trial and case was reversed.  

See Garcia v. State, 401 S.W.3d 300 (Tex.App-San Antonio 2013, pet. ref'd) Three family members of Defendant excluded form voir dire due to spaced limitations was error and case was reversed.
