They should look to see if he lost a eye. We know he can't recall where he's been, what he's done or where he's placed his eye.
He's already put it in writting.
Just the facts mam!
No Stevie Lonnie didn't lose the eye, and he knows were it is and has been, I hear it spent alot of time in your backside. Lonnie did and should kick your butt again.

No one asked for her cell number. What would calling her have to do with asking if there was a mugshot? Lol.

It certainly wasn't clever enough for you to repeat.

it's very smart to have a gag order in effect during the investigation on up to the time a charge is filed.

Redwater teen now charged as adult in triple murder By Carolyn Roy

"The teenaged suspect in the triple murder of a Texarkana mother and her two children will now be charged as an adult on capital murder charges.

That means Rachel Pittman, now 17, could face the death penalty if convicted...."

The question didn't fit did it. I just clicked on the wrong quote to reply and then corrected the error as someone else asked if they knew the mother's name. So, that being clarified... I'm curious, do you feel proud of yourself after making your snitty little, small-minded comment?

As usual, the reporters there do not know what they are talking about. According to the ruling of US Supreme Court, juveniles tried as adults can not be sentenced to death. The maximum sentence is life in prison. We don't yet know what happened here. 26% of the population has some form of mental disorder. 2.8% of the population has a severe mental disorder.

What I do know is other parties were involved, investigated and failed the polygraph. Parties that coerced, lied to and threatened this girl and the safety of her family. Combine that with severe mental illness and paranoia and look at the result. Will our illustrious DA go after them, or will he take the "headline" least path of resistance. Is he more worried about his job, or is he truly concerned with facts, the letter of the law and mitigating circumstances. It would be a shame to throw her under the bus and ignore the culpability of the adults!

It was a closed hearing. Only the judge, juvenile parole officer, the investigating Texas Ranger, Bowie County investigator, attorneys, bailiffs and parents were allowed in there. So if you were there, you just committed a crime by breaking the gag order which is still in effect. Also, let me reiterate, the D.A. could not seek the death penalty under these circumstances due to the ruling by the US Supreme Court in 2009, therefore he would not have made such a statement.

You are correct that she cannot be given the death penalty, even if tried as adult. You would think that at least a copy editor would have checked that out, if not the reporter him/herself.

I had long suspected there might have been others involved and that some sort of coersion & manipulation was a factor in this. I wonder, though, why that hasnt came to light in the media reports? Must be the gag order. Hmm.. Time will tell. Im not exactly law savvy myself...

We can only hope the DA does the right thing in this, whatever that may be. Hopefully, no culprits will go unpunished. I think there is supposed to be more updates tomorrow.

Side note: I apologize for getting snotty with you. I just saw where you made two posts saying to same thing and it didnt seem to make any sense (in regards to me). So I ASSumed you were flaming/trolling..my bad!!l haha

Do gag orders have more than one purpose? I'm confused on this too and thought the same as you. Anyone care to shed some light on what purpose this gag order served and why it is about to no longer be in effect? I could just google 'gag orders', I suppose...

Thank you for having the constitution to place that side note. I hope my comment came across as intended... humor mixed with a little sarcasm. Here is what I have to say about the D.A.

Here is what your tax dollars pay for this elected Bowie County DA, Jerry Rochelle being unprofessional and defensive to the defense:

"My family has gotten used to this salary. I really want to keep this job!"

This is the second time he has mentioned fear of losing his job. Should that really be his focus? He is beginning to sound more like a politician. At least how they think. Most of them are smart enough not to admit such a thing.

Priceless ... unprofessional .. inappropriate

I'm not even going to repeat his most unprofessional comment. When your focus is not the law and the proper application of it, and you make coarse, unprofessional comments, and that belies fear, incompetence and a level of lewdness that makes a person question whether the rules will be bent.
Perhaps he should just stick to running his real estate business.
