Texas County Will Allow Indigents to Hire Their Own Attorneys at Taxpayer Expense
The recent killing of a Kaufman County prosecutor is prompting renewed interest in a new court complex.
An assistant district attorney with the Kaufman County District Attorney’s Office has been shot and killed. Chief Prosecutor Mark Hasse was shot in the parking lot of the department of motor vehicles, across from the county courthouse.
The federal judiciary says it will close six courthouses in the South because of inadequate funding from Congress and the prospect of more drastic cuts.
