Random Crime Stats: Felony Cases Pending In Texas District Courts

County                            Population  Pending


That really is insane. Texas counties with basically the same population but with a vast different amount of pending felony cases as of 8/31/15 -- last stats available. (District court data source)

Starr County sticks out. I thought for a second that perhaps by some fluke that the district court had misdemeanor jurisdiction as well. Nope. They have 2,866 misdemeanors pending in other courts. (County data source).  Get this: Wise County has 666 misdemeanors pending!!!
