As well as the list below, I have about 150 other cases that never make the headlines.
Oh, because these are pending cases, I won't offer any commentary. Thus, the words below are taken directly from the news stories:
- Police have arrested a 25-year-old man who they say used a stun gun on people in a string of robberies early Sunday.
- Travis County Sheriff’s officials have charged a man with capital murder in connection with the fatal shooting of two men Monday morning outside a northeastern Travis County strip club.
- A former Austin hip-hop dancer has been jailed on four counts of sexual assault, with two of those charges involving 17-year-old girls, according to Travis County Jail records and court records.
- [This one is mine, though the appellate folks are handling it right now:] State District Judge Mike Lynch has granted a new trial to Daniel Joe Hernandez, a 23-year-old who was sentenced in September to 35 years in prison in the death of Francisco "Pancho" Iruegas, who was shot last year during an East Austin drive-by shooting.
[Headline, obviously:] Man arrested in 1985 Austin killing.... Nashville man, who worked in Austin music scene in 1980s, charged with murder.
But remind me, I can be forgetful.
