Paul Looney and his legal assistant Roxanne Avery file court motion
I CANNOT IMAGINE A MORE ABUSIVE PROCESS THAN WHAT HAS OCCURRED HERE. EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE BEEN OUT OF LIMBO BY NOW… – PAUL LOONEY
Waco – The last thing Paul Looney wanted to do was to make a public issue of the way prosecutors dragged his client’s reputation through mud.
In the last analysis, they forced his hand when they refused to remove video of the Twin Peaks defendant and his wife having sex and left the offending files in distribution to defense attorneys represent about 150 other bikers who were arrested at the Confederation of Clubs meeting that turned into a police blood bath on May 17, 2015.
As it is, he’s demanding the removal of DA Abel Reyna and his staff from the case – one of about 155 – the recall of the files, a court of inquiry, and criminal charges for a violation of the penal code.
In a wide-ranging press conference before television cameras, Looney speculated that the purpose for the distribution of the sex tapes was to coerce his client into pleading guilty in order to keep the indiscretely distributed, private pictures in the dark.
He stopped short of calling that a sign of bikers’ solidarity in not entering guilty pleas to the blanket and identical charge of engaging in organized criminal activity.
He said it is a move for “getting out of the mess.”
This is a complete transcript of Mr. Looney’s remarks and his answers to media questions at the McLennan County Courthouse during the noon hour today:
