Fellow Houston criminal-defense lawyer (and president of the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association) Robb Fickman adds, in response to the bill offering psychological counseling to former jurors:
How about this: How about some counseling for the families and children of men and women who have been found innocent after years of wrongful incarcerated? Oh yeah they get to beg the state for money.
How about restitution and counseling for the families of every man or woman that is found NOT GUILTY after spending every dime they have defending themselves against a wrongful allegation? How about that?
