    HOUSTON- ...The DA’s office announced Tuesday night that it had dropped charges against 602 people arrested during the protests in Houston, totaling 796 criminal cases. ...The majority of the cases dismissed, according to the office, were mainly for trespassing or obstructing a highway. “While probable cause existed for the arrests of those people who refused to disperse after being ordered to do so by police, our young prosecutors worked hard to identify the few offenders who came to inflict harm on others and intentional damage property,” DA Kim Ogg said. Prosecutors have charged 51 adults and one person under 18....

    Much has been made recently, here in Houston and across other big cities, about the horrific results of bail reform, but to be honest this isn’t even the worst of what is going on in the criminal justice system.

Those deals are much more insidious and damaging to our community. This is happening every day in Harris County courtrooms with the full knowledge and approval of the...

    HOUSTON - Remember the explosive speech by Houston Police Officers' Union President Joe Gamaldi in the hours following the deadly botched raid at a home on Harding Street earlier this year? "We are sick and tired of having dirtbags trying to take our lives when all we are trying to do is protect this community and protect our families," Gamaldi said on Jan. Gamaldi and the union stood defiantly that night in its backing of Sgt. Gerald Goines, as well as the other Houston police officers injured in the raid. For months thereafter, the union picked up Goines' legal tab....

The house had been under investigation for about two weeks after HPD received information about a suspect that was allegedly selling narcotics. A confidential informant was sent to purchase heroin from the suspect on January 27. The informant told officers the...

    An MS-13 gang member in Texas was sentenced to 99 years behind bars after he was convicted of killing a man to achieve a higher position within the violent organization, officials said. Jonathan Steven Guevara, 21, was handed the lengthy sentence by a jury on Tuesday for killing Hector Daniel Diaz, 28, in November 2015, according to a news release from the Harris County District Attorney’s office. “The jury’s verdict and sentence on the case we presented speaks volumes about society’s judgment of this vicious behavior,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said. “We will hold these gangs accountable, convict...
