It’s been over two weeks since we’ve reported about the controversy in Waller County.
Residents and some elected officials have complained about the lack of action taken by the justice system in the rural area.
It was back on July 1 when a prominent attorney from the area allegedly led law enforcement officers on a pursuit along highway 290.
Investigators with the Sheriff’s office confirms the incident and investigation.
However, once the suspect was stopped he was not immediately arrested.
That attorney was taken to a hospital according to Sheriff’s investigators for a blood draw to determine what if anything was in his system.
That was back on July 1.
Now, the factor hears residents and possibly some elected officials will hold a press conference Thursday to name the suspect and call out the Sheriff and District Attorney in Waller County.
Just Tuesday DA Elton Mathis said there would be an announcement this Friday on the case but that may be too late for those in the community.
