When will final TYC sex abuse trial begin?
I've got to agree with the Texas Civil Rights Project that it's long past time for the final trial to begin in the Texas Youth Commission sex-abuse scandals out in Pyote. Scott Medlock at TCRP blames state District Court. District Judge Jay Gibson for the delay, but the last judge assigned to the case, Bob Parks, wouldn't set the cases for trial, either. The conduct at issue now occurred six years ago and most of the evidence has been made public in the pages of the Texas Observer and the Dallas News more than three years ago. There have been many excuses offered for the delays, but we're reaching the point where tragedy transcends to farce. The AG has said they're ready to go. Vamos! Get on with it, already!
