Recent cases in San Antonio

Federal judges to discuss fate of SA judge who told (allegedly) new citizens to leave if they don’t like Trump

This is just the latest case of the pajama boys and girls getting their panties in a knot because of perceived racial/ethnic insensitivity. I am so sick of these crybabies with their feigned hurt feelings and outrage. I know the magistrate judge in question from being in his court fairly often and he is a good man and a good judge.

Meanwhile, where is the outrage over the cold blooded assassination of a San Antonio police officer?

San Antonio lawyer accused of fabricating court documents skips hearing
from SA Express
he whereabouts of a San Antonio attorney accused of fabricating court documents and forging judges’ signatures appear to be a mystery.
Lawyer Todd Prins failed to appear at a court hearing Monday despite instructions by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Craig Gargotta that he needed to attend the proceedings.
Martin Seidler, Prins’ attorney, said he did not know Prins’ whereabouts.

Latest Kerrville Murders - Why no Outcry??

I don't know anything about the most recent murder case (or one of the two most recent cases) in Kerrville. The Hill Country Community Journal reported last week:
Two days after receiving a missing persons report on a San Antonio woman, Kerr County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer has charged a 36-year-old Kerr County man with murder.
"On Nov. 2, 2016, the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office started an investigation into a missing persons report of Magan King, a 26-year-old female from San Antonio," Hierholzer said. "The investigation led officers to the Auld Ranch in West Kerr County. This was the last place Magan was seen."
Hierholzer said that based on the information received during the investigation, he was able to obtain a probable cause warrant allowing his deputies to search the 5,600-acre ranch.

News4SA has given a lot more information than the Kerrville Daily Times:
Sheriff says man goes to great lengths to conceal murder
KERR COUNTY- A bizarre murder out of the Texas Hill Country. The Kerr County sheriff's office says a well-known ranch owner killed a San Antonio woman thinking evidence could never be found on his thousands of acres of land.

“This is about the area where the murder would have taken place,” said Kerr County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer.

Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer says the missing person’s report for 26-year-old Magan King led them to the ranch of Eric Daniel Auld in Hunt, Texas.

"This is about the area we found her,” said Sheriff Hierholzer.

It is puzzling to me that we have had so many murders in Kerr County this year, and that it doesn't seem to alarm anyone. It sounds like Eric Auld is alleged to have kidnapped a young woman in San Antonio or lured her to his ranch and murdered her and disposed of her body. Why isn't this huge news? Is murder just so common place now that it's relegated behind stories of the latest speaker at the noon Rotary club or the usual pabulum about the local spelling bee?

If anyone has information on this case they'd like to share you know how to contact me.

Former Kerr County official cleared of DWI, weapon charges

Former Kerr County Attorney Robert “Rob” Henneke won’t be prosecuted on charges of DWI and unlawfully carrying a weapon in Travis County, authorities there said Monday, because blood test result showed he wasn’t intoxicated.
“I’m glad this is over and that prosecutors have acknowledged my innocence,” said Henneke, 39, currently the director and general counsel for the Center for the American Future at the Texas Public Policy Foundation in Austin.

Read the whole article by Zeke MacCormack on the SA Express News website. I'm glad the case was dismissed since he was innocent. This is a good reminder of why we have constitutional and procedural safeguards for people charged with crimes.
