The judge issued the gag order to preserve the integrity of the case. Law Enforcement, DA, Defense Attorney, family, and anyone directly involved with this case is covered by this order. Any ongoing investgations by the DA and the Defense Attorney, such as witnesses, that may be interviewed and/ or deposed, and information gained from any investigation, as both sides build their cases, would be covered by this gag order. If the gag order is violated, then penalties would be imposed. You can find the penalties in the Texas Penal Code. The Judge is absolutely correct in his diligence to protect this case. The case has to be proven on "facts". Any potential juror will have to be able to make their decision on the evidence presented. The Judge is protecting the "People" and the Defendant.

First of all Texas's father was not the person who had a child support & custody hearing it was Guenivere's dad, who is not even living in Texarkana. He is from Austin, TX & has rarely seen her for many years. He is the one who was a person of interest in the case from the start. Texas's father had to be taken to the emergency room from the scene he was so overcome with grief. People unless you know for FACT don't start sending around things that aren't true. This has hurt & touched so many people & changed their lives forever.
The gazette reported a few weeks ago and said brad johnson was a person of interest in the beginning because of the way he acted going to the house that morning....so thats where that came from...i dont know the families but who r the police to say how someone should or should not act when their child is brutally murdered...i have never believed he (texas's dad) had anything to do with it

They will not seek death even if shes tried as an adult

The SCOTUS decided this in March 2005 in a case called Roper v Simmons. They ruled that the death penalty for those who had committed their crimes at under 18 years of age was cruel and unusual punishment and hence barred by the Constitution

They aren't "protecting" her. While she may be 17 now, she was technically still a minor when she committed the crime. They are now waiting to try her as an adult. Once they decide on that, I'm sure the story will open up more. The law is the law.

I agree with common sense. Once it is determined that she will be tried as an adult, more information could be released. But there is that little ole' matter of a gag order. I'm just as inquisitive as the next person. We already know the who, what, when, and where. The how and why is kickin' our behinds. Surely no one wants a mis-trial, aquittal, hung jury, or mental defect as the outcome of a trial. So we just have to be patient.

I just read section 54.02 of the Texas Family Code. If I'm not mistaken she has to be bound over to the Criminal Court as she is charged with Capital Murder.(X3) IF she planned this, as Sherriff Prince stated in his press release, should she not be charged with premeditated murder???

I think Steve Jones has a point,our police force needs to watch CSI.I'm sorry for any parent who has to suffer the loss of a child.I do believe this 16 year old girl was mentally ill long before this happened and didn't get the help she needed,but she will never suffer the way Amanda Doss and her children did.I pray she never gets out, because a person that is evil enough to do something this horrible should stay in prison for life.
