Rick Perry Wants to Go to Europe, Avoid His First Pre-Trial Hearing

24 September 2014 at 8:13:05 AM


Perry has plans to fly to Europe on Oct. 12 and visit England, Poland, Croatia, Romania and the Baltics.

The motion to the judge from Perry’s attorneys sounded aggrieved that their request was not honored by McCrum, saying it’s not that unusual and that “in 37 years of practicing criminal defense, Mr. Botsford has never encountered a prosecutor who has opposed such a request, in state or federal court.”

If the judge rules that Perry must be there, the lawyers said they would ask for a postponement of the hearing until the next week, when Mr. Perry returns from Europe.

SA Express - Prosecutor says Perry is making a mockery of the sytem and shouldn't be excused from the pretrial hearing. 

Texas Tribune

Gov. Rick Perry should not be excused from all hearings leading up to his felony trial because the governor is no different than "any other citizen of Texas," the special prosecutor in the criminal case said in a motion filed Wednesday.

"The state does object to Mr. Perry's request to be permitted to not appear in court at all 'future non-evidentiary hearings' in this case," wrote Mike McCrum, the San Antonio lawyer who was appointed special prosecutor in the case. "From carpenters to lawyers to judges accused of anything from tickets to federal felonies, all are expected to appear in court."

Also from A-AS

“In my 30 years of practice, I’ve never had a defense lawyer show up and say, ‘Can my client just not appear for all these pretrial conferences,’” Michael McCrum told the American-Statesman and KVUE-TV on Tuesday. “Judges would laugh them out of the court.”

Loved this tweet

It is kind of funny that Rick Perry's response to being indicted for acting as if he's above the law is to act as if he's above the law. A+

Looks like Perry's not doing anything as governor, what a surprise but <a data-cke-saved-href="http://In a five-page motion, Perry\'s defense team asked a judge to excuse the governor from a hearing scheduled for Oct. 13 due to " href="http://In a five-page motion, Perry\'s defense team asked a judge to excuse the governor from a hearing scheduled for Oct. 13 due to " long-standing="" plans="" to="" be="" in="" europe"="" for="" an="" oct.="" 12-19="" tour="" encourage="" foreign="" investment="" texas.="" read="" more="" here:="" http:="" www.miamiherald.com="" news="" nation-world="" article2203845.html#storylink="cpy&quot;">probably using crony money to go to Europe to encourage *foreign investment* in Texas. Nice little vacay that he'll probably try to turn into *foreign policy* experience-hah! Whether Rick Perry trying to skip out on being SEEN and PHOTOGRAPHED at a hearing (which you KNOW is the real reason he's trying to put this off), there's some questions, to me, about the whole idea of a governor gallivanting around the world to get foreign investors in our state. How exactly does that work? What kind of taxes do they pay? We don't have a state tax. Would it be that Rick Perry wants to go bribe companies to come here, as he did with Spacex? 

To beat out six other competitors, Texas is putting up $2.3 million in cash and invest $13 million in infrastructure developments to bring a SpaceX launch facility to Brownsville. In return, SpaceX will invest $85 million in the launch facilities and, according to Texas’ governor, Rick Perry, create 300 jobs loading and serving rockets and managing their lift-off.
