Paxton Establish To Make First Court Appearance


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton will appear for the very first time since he was indicted on three felony charges.

He’s likely to plead not guilty after Joe Kendall, his lawyer, said Paxton will visit trial.
A grand jury in Collin County charged Paxton, a Republican, with two first degree felonies on alleged securities law violations.

Paxton can also be accused of a third degree felony for failing to file as an investment advisor with all the Texas State Securities Board.

The indictments say when Paxton was a state lawmaker the alleged illegal actions took place. He was elected as attorney general in November.

The deputy executive director Manny Garcia of the Texas Democratic Party will hold a news conference beyond the courthouse following Paxton’s hearing. Paxton’s assistants will also be likely to arrive outside of the courthouse.
