ARE YOU READY FOR ROUND TWO – SHOULD THERE BE A ROUND 2?
It was reported on Monday that Harris County District attorney Chuck Rosenthal was planning to retry former TSU President Dr. Priscilla Slade. This comes after jurors failed to reach a decision in her trial last week. The published report also indicated Rosenthal would go after Slade for a second time on a new charge of Criminal Financial Mismanagement. That would be different from misapplication of fiduciary property, the charge prosecutors used in the first trial. But The Insite corresponded with Rosenthal Tuesday morning and he denies he’s changing the criminal charge against Slade in the next prosecution attempt. He says, “no change (in charges). There is no criminal offense of criminal financial mismanagement.” So there you have it – Chuck Rosenthal setting the record straight on the Insite!
