THANK GOD FOR CHRIS BAKER AND MY KTRH ATTORNEY!

MEMORABLE MOMENTS BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE RICHARD KING VERDICT!

When Harris County sheriff’s deputy Richard King was cleared of aggravated assault by a public servant Wednesday he wanted to thank KTRH talk show host Chris Baker. He said without voices like Chris Baker he doesn’t know what would have happened to him. King, who faced 99 years in prison, said Baker supported him on the airwaves non-stop. It was back in July 2005 when King shot and disabled a man who was leading deputies on a high speed chase. Eventually the veteran of the force was indicted and brought to trial. In 30 minutes on Wednesday he was cleared by a jury of his peers. While outside the courtroom King also said he wanted to thank his department for supporting him, his Fraternal Order of Police attorney Richard Cobb and his KTRH attorney Chris Tritico. Tritico stunned by the proclamation quickly corrected King and told him I’m not your KTRH attorney but your counsel from a private practice. Tritico also hosts a talk show on KTRH for the record. King, who was all smiles and thanking God, did a long list of interviews with tv, radio and newspaper reporters. When he made it to the outside of the Harris County courthouse he told The Insite – finally a reporter I recognize and then said “Hi, Isiah how are you?” Just a slice of The Insite’s life!
