All for Want of a Horseshoe Nail


Houston criminal-defense lawyer Sharon Levine has passed away.

Sharon was a great and caring warrior for each of her clients, but the case for which she’ll always be remembered in the Houston criminal defense community was a piddly little class B misdemeanor evading arrest case of little interest to anyone but her and her client. Sharon’s client’s refusal in that case to cave in, to pay his one-dollar fine and move on down the road, set the stage for the civil lawsuit that revealed to the public the rot in the Chuck Rosenthal DA’s Office. Houston DUI lawyer Paul B. Kennedy has the story.

Services for Sharon will be tomorrow, Tuesday, December 30, 2008 at 1:00 p.m. at the Chapel at Woodlawn Cemetery, 1101 Antoine, Houston, Texas.

Sharon was 38 years old. Please keep her family in your thoughts.
