Our Justice System at Work

Many people have complained that our District Attorney Jaime Esparza has not done enough to weed out public corruption.

Well, you can quit your bitching. From the El Paso Times:

An El Paso district judge faces an April 20 trial on a disorderly conduct charge over his middle finger.

Judge Patrick Garcia, who presides over the 384th District Court, is scheduled to go on trial in April on a disorderly conduct charge after County Court at Law No. 1 Judge Ricardo Herrera filed a sheriff’s report claiming Garcia flipped him off.

. . .

The El Paso County District Attorney’s Office said, “After an investigation, it was determined that the offense of disorderly conduct required prosecution.”

The trial is scheduled to be held at about 1:30 p.m. April 20 in the Justice of the Peace Precinct 4 courtroom with Judge Jesus Urenda presiding.

(I hope it ends quick so we can all go enjoy our 4-20 celebrations.)

It’s good to see our District Attorney taking on the difficult issues and controversies confronting the political system in El Paso. Hopefully, this strong action will deter other public servants from betraying the public trust.

I guess now District Attorney Esparza can go back to doing whatever it was he was doing.
