UPDATE SONIA SOLIS, AND EIGHT LINERS

According to court staff in Fort Worth, Sonia Solis has been released on bond and ordered to appear before the federal court here in Brownsville on the 28th of August.  I should have a time posted by tomorrow.

The indictment of Sonia Leticia Solis is below.

CLICK FOR INDICTMENT


The indictment relates to the congressional race and not cameron county races. This does not mean candidates in Cameron county races were not also beneficiaries. In fact if the congressional race was used just as a way to get it into federal court, when in fact the targets are county officials, it is yet further proof the FBI and AG do not trust District Attorney Saenz.
EIGHT LINERS

On the KB Foundation the case it was reset to next Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.  My source is telling me Judge Janet Leal discussed the blogging issue with counsel and she has decided to take it to the other judges.

Here is the bottom line, the federal courts have the strongest rules regulating the press and they have opened the door to live blogging.  I will do a letter to all of the judges citing the research related to blogging in federal courts. 

The fact that federal judge Hanen recognizes I have a right to blog live from his court should be all anyone needs to know.  I will be blogging Limas sentencing hearing live starting at 9 a.m. tomorrow.

The press has an absolute right to the courtroom so long as they comply with the rules of decorum.

Also I don't think the seize property in this case involves 8-liner machines. I believe it was computer programs that run sweepstakes. 8-liner are essentially slot machines. Computerize sweepstakes are software that may simulate a slot machine or other games to reveal if a prize is won. Small distinction but an important one. 8-liner are always illegal if they give out cash prizes-whether $5 or 5 cents. Sweepstakes software and the computers that run it on the other hand can give out cash prizes if run legally. In practice however almost all these places run sweepstakes illegally.

Think of the monopoly game at McDonald's. if instead of a pull tab ticket on your coffee, you were given the chance to go to a computer terminal, and play a game which will reveal if you won (regardless of how the game turns out). That's what these people are trying to do. The question for these places is going to be whether participants were forced to pay consideration for their entries.

I am sorry it should say sweepstakes - you are correct and thanks for the correction.

Know my issue - in the case of the charity shops the community is confused. If this is a question of law up in the air it is wrong to arrest anyone - for me the better approach is the DA trying to seek a TRO and handle it that way - also in the case of the charity sweepstakes I think it is wrong to ticket the patrons while the law seems so confusing.

I really want to learn the truth - we need to be 100% about the law as to valid charities before we drag patrons into court.

I understand your post, but I do not encourage debates about whose religion is better - it is too easy to use as a distraction.

On Tuesday we will learn the truth - maybe - but I suspect KB Foundation will have to wait until their forfeiture action

Judge Leal will dismiss their intervention - it does not meet the legal standards

Sorry cannot really reply - I am sure Villalobos is cooperating and I am sure DA Saenz will make sure the entire truth about KB Foundation comes out
