Ogg statement on today's proceedings at Commissioners Court

June 25, 2019 

Statement from Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg on today’s proceedings at Commissioners Court:

My office remains dedicated to fully investigating the Harding Street shootings and will pursue justice no matter how long it takes. The surviving family members and our entire community deserve to know the truth sooner, not later. Unnecessary delay creates hardship for everyone associated with this tragedy.

If police misconduct led to the wrongful convictions of anyone, then every extra day served in the penitentiary waiting for justice increases the potential financial liability for Harris County taxpayers.
