DUMB ASS INEPT JURY GIVES PROBATION FOR MANSLAUGHTER  TO WOMAN SPEEDING AND TEXTING

It is not just the DA and Judges, You cannot trust some of these juries.  I respect the jury system, but sometimes you get the dumbest juries.  I will never forget the assault case wherein we won a new trial because immediately after the trial the jury told us, including the judge, they did not believe one word of the complainant and that the they found my client guilty because he appeared to be a bully.

Sometimes you have a bad jury, and sometimes the DA intentionally does not do their job. 

 "Prosecutors asked state District Judge Migdalia Lopez to send Nunez-Ortiz to jail for up to 180 days as a condition of her probation.

The judge ordered her into custody, to be held until formal sentencing on Oct. 3."


HERE IS THE CON FROM DA SAENZ

The defendant did not immediately make bail of $250,000.  Note in my other story I called for a new bond of $250,000 for Taylor Ramirez.  With the time this defendant already spent in jail and the 30 days before sentencing she will get time served on the DA's request.  So the request for 180 days is actually showmanship and not a real request for any jail time.

There is no credit for time served when it is ordered as a condition of probation. Also, all time ordered as a condition of probation is day-for-day.

You know I meant to try and do the research on the issue, but I have seen judges order time served on plea deals - but there is an important distinction here - it is a condition of probation. I appreciate the insight. Now, the US Supreme court has issued two strong rulings about the jury deciding sentencing. There may be a good appealable issue if Texas law allows the judge to add jail time to a verdict by the jury.

To be honest I think it is a can of worms.

Based on how it works will her 30 days waiting for sentencing count towards the jail time as a condition of jail time?
