LITTLE CORRECTS PICKETT- CHILDREN WILL BE DEFENDED

When readers first heard that eight out of the eleven small children found in the infamous house in Dayton were locked in a room with some tied to tiny beds in a ten foot by ten foot room and that has no electric lights and the window is boarded up from the inside, many may have wanted to be on the jury when justice is pursued. But then readers were shocked to read in The Chronicle that Liberty County’s youngest Assistant District Attorney, Logan Pickett “Found insufficient evidence to pursue any criminal charges”.

Whoa! Four of the eight children in that room, including a “5-year-old legally blind girl found on a filthy mattress”, were tied with some kind of restraining strap around their chests to their small beds AND PICKETT SAYS THERE IS INSUFFICIENT EVIDENCE! Add to that information that one of the older children said they were kept up in the room for up to three days and one day they had no food.

What the heck is going on here. Attached to this story are news links that show this story gets worse and worse the more readers get to find out what Logan Pickett and law enforcement found in the house on Ford Avenue in Dayton Texas. Leaving readers, and probably law enforcement, baffled by Pickett saying he did not intend on pursuing this case.

But those who have followed this District Attorney’s office know that Logan Pickett has a great deal less experience than anyone else in that office and there is a good chance he just passed along the wrong message. Or because Pickett has had a front row seat to witness a troubling pattern of selective prosecution, perhaps he was mimicking what he has seen during his young and brief career. Either way, his boss came in and overruled him.

District Attorney Mike Little has now gone on record saying that his office will present their findings to a grand jury. Now we are all left hoping no one in the D.A.’s office will help present this case to the grand jury that feels there is “insufficient evidence”.

Little is too political,Pickett way too Green, and Warren way to angry and power hungry.

he doesn't need a headline case. They're counting on the cleveland gang rape case, as the ticket to re-election. It's no accident that the trials were scheduled for 2012.
The evidence was all in hand, last spring.

Outsiders and Patterson should pay for what they did to Joe Warren.

Cleveland's gang rape case? I heard that case has been compromised due to the 2 locks being damaged & had to be repaired at CPD. Heard that all pending county cases with CPD has been unsecured for about a year or so, and their chief knew about it & didn't fix it till forced to. He's so ghetto fabulous. Didn't he make the pd & jail go without hot water cause he was to cheap to buy a water heater with funds that don't even belong to him. Here's a kicker & true story.....CPD's water dispenser in the breakroom was repo'd cause he didn't pay the bill. Ya, ya but he has a new SUV lol..GHETTO!

Sounds to me like it was an insufficient case of not wanting to work. And this Picett wants to be our next DA? Bahahaha.

I do not want to be too hard on Mr. Pickett. This is the way you learn. He and Joe Warren however need to quit politicking to juries. My niece said that they both overtly mention to her jury pool that Mr. Pickett is running. That is a no-no. Appearing ethical is imprtant for a young man when he is getting started.
