DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Prosecutors have to be careful about what they say about now-former Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent.
Friday morning, the judge who will preside over Brent’s Intoxication Manslaughter trial told attorneys the case is receiving excessive publicity.
Judge Robert Burns also asserted that some of the things being said, by individuals involved in the case, have been incorrect. Burns did not issue a gag order for the case.
Brent’s attorney, George Milner, is upset with some of the comments made by Dallas District Attorney Craig Watkins during an appearance on the CBS radio station 105.3 The Fan last month. During one part if The Fan’s G-Bag Nation (Gavin & Chris) show, Watkins said, “Obviously Josh Brent has an issue with alcohol and you just can’t, you know, one day decide that you’re going to stop using it and so I think he’s struggling with that and so I’m not surprised with the outcome of what’s going on with this case.”
