Braunfels family last Mattox announced his decision Wednesday following an extensive review of the record in this and after a thorough investigation of all the It appears there is justification to prosecute Savage for the deaths of three innocent Mattox I will not prejudge this but this office will work hard to see that justice is An assistant attorney general will be named to prosecute the case within the next few Mattox In an attempt to narrow down the candidate Will a clerk in the Public Information There are more of them assistants than I can But if I had to it will probably be someone from the Enforcement District Attorney Bill Schroeder was in the drivers seat for the first case against who was fined and placed on 10 years probation for the death of Ruben Sauceda by a Comal County jury on April Saucedas pregnant wife and two small children were also struck and killed as they walked along Highway 81 on My decision to not prosecute Savage for the other three deaths

the judge to set a pretrial and I will file a writ of habeas By doing if the judge denies my relief I have the op portunity to be heard by an appellate court before a trial ever I am also thinking about filing a motion to recuse withdraw the AGs Office from prosecuting the because I believe the decision was politically Woods In I will withdraw any motion I had on a change of and will oppose it from the other There are certain things they must prove to take another trial out of Comal But smiles were on the faces of Virginia leader of the Committee of Justice for and committee member Ezequiel
