Jeremiah was charged with barratry this week by the Harris County District Attorney’s office. Investigators say Binder solicited clients for an attorney in the criminal courthouse which would be against the law. Prosecutor Wendy Baker also says Binder told some people he was an attorney as well.
Now, back to Nash…he says he was at a Harris County Public Defender’s meeting Thursday afternoon when he was told to come to a press conference in midtown Houston. He says he was called by an associate of Binder. But when Nash arrived he said he was not clear why he was there when he heard the topic up for discussion…criminal allegations against Binder.
Nash said he was then pressured to sit at the table with Binder during the interview with FOX 26.
By the way, I witnessed Nash saying several times he didn’t want to sit at the table with Binder.
Nash says in no way is he proclaiming that Binder aka Jeremiah is innocent or guilty in this case. He says, “I don’t know what he did.”
The member of Ministers Against Crime said he and Reverend William Lawson did visit the District Attorney’s Office this week to try and help Binder turn himself in on a pocket warrant.
But Nash says he thought he was at the press conference Thursday for a discussion on the Public Defender’s Office!
Report from Press Conference:
What is a pocket warrant: A “pocket warrant” is sanctioned by Texas code CCP art. 15.03(a)(2), where an arrest warrant can issue “when any person shall make oath before the magistrate that another has committed some offense against the laws of the State.” It does not require that the person also request that the magistrate file a formal criminal charge. Thus, the arrest can take place before the suspects are aware that they are wanted for the crime, and the complaint can be filed after they are taken into custody.
